The third ever philanthropic Cash & Rocket Tour is set to start in Saint Mark’s Square, Venice – completing three days later in London...

On June 5, 70 women from the worlds of fashion, art, film, music and finance will steer 35 red luxury vintage cars all the way to London from Venice – via Geneva and Paris – in the name of charity.

Sponsors of the glamorous event include Valentino,, McArthur Glen, Maserati and Aston Martin, in the hope to support three African charities focused on education and childcare: Shine On Sierra Leone, OrphanAid Africa and Sumbandila.

“As a woman and mother I am happy to be able to help other women and children. I’m profoundly convinced that it’s essential to offer them education and growth opportunities, and for me to give back what I’ve received,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri, Valentino Co-creative Directorwho piloted one of the tour’s cars last year, will do so for the second time on June 5.
