Only 10 will ever be made and this is the only one that will be made available for sale. It’s great to see this DB10 raising vital funds for Médecins Sans Frontières. It is a fantastic charity that we are delighted to support”.

The proceeds from the initiative shall reportedly go to ‘Doctors without Borders’ or ‘Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)’ who shall distribute funds among the needy.
