During his live radio show with Russell Brand on Xfm this evening Noel Gallagher announced two further donations to help the Teenage Cancer Trust as part of the week of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall this week
Damien Hirst has donated a limited edition print (pictured), which is set to raise up to £30,000 at auction. The stunning artwork, called Mantra, is a diamond dusted silk screen print of butterfly wings, from an edition of 50 and signed by the artist. It will go under the hammer at Bonhams London on the 17th July to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Additionally, Noel will be donating the last remaining pairs of limited edition signature trainers he designed in association with Adidas. Each pair will be signed personally by Noel. Only 200 pairs of these shoes were ever produced and they sold out instantly when first released. The Teenage Cancer Trust will be selling the trainers along with other memoraibilia connected with the 2013 performances via an online auction shortly after the Royal Albert Hall shows are completed.
