Noel Gallagher Fans Raise Charity Funds Through Bracelet Sales

Fans of Noel Gallagher have helped to boost a U.K. cancer charity's funds by $9,600 (£6,000) after snapping up quirky bracelets fashioned from the British rocker's guitar strings.

The former Oasis star agreed to donate a bunch of his old strings to Wear Your Music bosses, who turned them into unique bangle-style accessories, available for $150 (£93.75) each for a limited period.

Proceeds from the project have been donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust and Gallagher is delighted with the amount of money raised.

A post on his Twitter.com page reads: "You raised £6000 for @TeenageCancer via @WearYourMusic by buying braclets made from Noels guitar strings. Well done (sic)!"

Gallagher has been working closely with the charity of late after taking over from The Who legend Roger Daltrey to organise his annual seriesof benefit gigs for 2013.
