Bids were made both online and at an event at London auctioneers Christie’s last week (end19Feb16), with Bond fans competing for 24 lots donated by the Spectre cast and director Sam Mendes.
The proceeds made from the two auctions raised around $4.3 million (£3 million) for charities including Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) and the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS).
The highest selling lot was an Aston Martin DB10 car used in the movie, which sold for $3.4 million (£2.4 million).
