Lot Essay

The Financial Times has joined forces with Christie’s and some of the world’s leading restaurants in London and New York to offer you the opportunity to bid for a one-on-one lunch with your favourite FT columnist. All proceeds go to the FT’s seasonal appeal charity, World Child Cancer, which aims to improve cancer treatment and care for children across the developing world. As a further incentive for giving, the UK government will match the winners’ bids pound for pound, doubling your donation.

The survival rate for children with cancer is just 5% in developing nations compared to 80% in developed countries. World Child Cancer aims to address this inequality in cancer care by improving diagnosis, as well as providing access to life-saving cancer treatment.
