Ever fancied living the high life in a private box, owning silks signed by a champion jockey or shoes worn by a Cheltenham Festival-winning racehorse?

Charity auction site Buy Once Give Twice is currently featuring several unique horseracing memorabilia items, all of which will be sold to benefit charity.

Up for sale is a fully catered box for 10 people at Ascot racecourse — and the current price stands at just £750.

Other lots include silks signed by champion jockey AP McCoy and trainer Jonjo O’Neill and a signed Timmy Murphy photo — both benefiting the NSPCC.

There are even shoes worn by three-time Ladbrokes World Hurdle winner Inglis Drever for sale in aid of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Trainer Howard Johnson said: “Inglis Drever was wearing this pair of shoes when he stormed up the hill on 13th March 2008.

“With Denis O’Regan on board they battled against the persistent challenge of Kasbah Bliss to victory.”

The company — dubbed as ‘philanthropic recycling for the 21st century’ — was founded last year to resell unwanted lots bought at charity events and auctions.

Bidding closes for the Ascot box at 11am tomorrow (Thursday 25 September) and 2/3 October for the others.

Money raised from the sale of the box goes towards the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity that provides entertainment in hospitals and children’s hospices to over 500,000 children a year throughout the UK.
