1987 Bentley 8 to be Auctioned for CharityA rather elegant 1987 Bentley 8 will take its place amongst over 150 other classic cars at the Historics at Brooklands auction in Surrey on Saturday, 7th June.

Significantly, this much-loved and well-travelled Bentley, presented in fine condition inside and out, is offered at no reserve, with all proceeds from the sale donated to charity at the request of the vendor, plus Historics’ sellers and buyers commissions.

1987 Bentley 8 to be Auctioned for CharityWhilst the Historics auction catalogue was being prepared the sad news came from the vendor that his sister Lucy had passed away following a three-year battle against liver cancer. She was 42 and leaves behind a nine-year old daughter.

Lucy had been given just weeks to live in 2011, but with the aid of the extraordinary work of the research charity, Cancer Vaccine Institute, she enjoyed a good quality of life for a further 2½ years.

1987 Bentley 8 to be Auctioned for CharityProfessor Angus Dalgleish and the team at CVI rely on donations alone. All funds therefore from the sale of this Bentley on Saturday 7th June, will be donated to the Cancer Vaccine Institute. Further donations are encouraged, and can be made through their website: www.cancervaccine.org.uk/donate.html.
