Britt Ekland ("Bond girl" Mary Goodnight in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun) has signed a very rare photo (taken by Pier Luigi 1964 in Peter Sellers Hollywood villa) for sale at a charity auction in Stockholm for the benefit of Barndiabetesfonden. FSWL've got all the details and can offer a preview.

For the third year in a row, Barndiabetesfonden (Child Diabetes Fund) in Sweden, together with Stockholms Auktionsverk and Lilly Diabetes organizes a charity auction at Berns Salonger in Stockholm during World Diabetes Day on November 14 to raise money for juvenile diabetes research.

Several other unique photos will be auctioneered during this auction.

Bidding will only take place at the evening of the 14th of November, 2013. The auction can only be attended by invitation but the public can bid on telephone. Contact Stockholms Auktionsverk for more about the bidding process.

All proceeds during the evening will go to research childhood diabetes. The 2011 auction brought in a total of 653 000 SEK and last year's auction (including Izabella Scorupco's GoldenEye bikini) raised more than 1 Million SEK, hopefully that will be surpassed this year.

In Sweden, about 8000 children and adolescents live with diabetes, a life-long disorder that involves daily treatments and many hospital visits. Today, diabetes is an incurable, life-threatening disease, and the only thing that can change this is continuing research in this area. Sweden is the second nation in the world with the highest rate of diabetes amongst children. Children suffer almost exclusively of type-1 diabetes, which means that the cells producing insulin die. Three times more children are diagnosed with diabetes than all forms of cancer combined.
