Sharjah: The Sharjah Police Headquarters, in cooperation with Emirates Auction, will organise a charity public auction of 55 distinguished vehicle number plates of category 3.

The auction will be held on Saturday at Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Centre in Sharjah.

Sharjah Police allocated three vehicle number plates — 111, 303 and 3333 — at the auction for The Big Heart Foundation, with the goal of supporting the foundation’s humanitarian and developmental projects that serve children and people in need worldwide. The auction comes under the framework of the memorandum of understanding that was recently signed between the two sides that aims to implement initiatives that enhance the efforts of the UAE and the emirate of Sharjah in the field of humanitarian work.

The auction, which starts at 4pm, includes a variety of unique numbers that appeal to the different tastes of buyers of distinguished number plates.

Among the most prominent number plates in the auction is the six-figure number plate — 100000 — in addition to the only single-digit number in the auction — 3. The auction will also include three double-digit number plates — 13, 30 and 44 — nine triple-digit number plates — 115, 131, 210, 311, 456, 500, 609, 696 and 990 — 19 four-digit number plates and 19 five-digit number plates.

Emirates Auction said it expects the auction to witness a high turnout due to its charitable nature and due to the collection of distinguished numbers up for grabs.

All number plates can be found on the company’s website,, or through its smartphone application. Those wishing to participate in the auction should be present well in advance before the bidding starts to deposit a security cheque upon registration and to purchase a Dh50 admission ticket to attend the auction. Bidders are entitled to an unlimited number of plates and the auction prices start at the specified nominal value.

The Big Heart Foundation, which is under the patronage of Shaikha Jawaher Bint Mohammad Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, is one of the most important humanitarian aid organisations for children in need and their parents in the region and around the world.
