The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, with watchmaker Gc on hand to support the organisation at one of its events.

Earlier this week, the BHF put on its Tunnel of Love at Victoria House in Holborn, with the timepiece brand one of the sponsors for the occasion.

To honour being linked with the funfair-themed attraction, Gc supplied one of its Sport Chic devices for a special auction that was held there.

Some of the attractive features which may have had people clamouring for a bid include 15 diamonds being are set into its design and silver and rose gold tones featuring on the watch's bezel.

Other popular pieces auctioned at the BHF event included the Damien Hirst, Psalm Print: Benedictus Dominus and artwork by names such as Rob Ryan and Sir Peter Blake.

Tunnel of Love was attended by a host of well-loved names in the celebrity world, including former S Club singer Rachel Stevens and ex-Eastender Martine McCutcheon.
