Four stamp sheets signed by world champion Formula 1 drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are being auctioned for a cancer charity.

The sheets, all numbered ‘0001’ feature the drivers, in the Guernsey issue released on October 27, 2011.

The eBay auction runs from February 17 to February 26.

The Teenage Cancer Trust launched its Guernsey Appeal in 2011, with plans to open a specialist 10-bed unit at Southampton General Hospital, which will cost more than £1 million.  The opening of the unit would mean that for the first time, young cancer patients living in the Channel Islands and parts of Southern England will be treated with others their own age.

The Guernsey branch has already raised £150,000 for the Southampton unit appeal.

Collectors can bid on the sheets here.
