WaterAid’s Christmas auction, featuring special edition signed Q Award vinyl records from some of the country’s best-known music acts, launches on 26th November. All the money raised from the auction will go to international charity WaterAid.
The full collection of autographed vinyl records includes: Sir Tom Jones, Noel Gallagher, Chris Martin, Foals, Gary Numan, Jazzie B (Soul II Soul), Mark Ronson, Duran Duran, New Order, Roger Taylor (Queen), James Bay, Bernard Sumner (Joy Division, New Order), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Danny Goffey (Supergrass), Midge Ure (Ultravox), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), The Libertines, Jean Michel Jarre, La Roux, Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Royal Blood, Ella Eyre, Foxes and host of the Q awards Absolute Radio’s Christian O’Connell.
Tony Iommi, the legendary lead guitarist from Black Sabbath, signed a Gibson Les Paul guitar that will also be available in the auction. He was the winner of the prestigious Gibson Les Paul Award at the Q Awards this year for his outstanding contribution to music.
All the money raised from the auction will go towards WaterAid’s winter appeal Deliver Life, giving mums and babies in the world’s poorest communities the best start in life - simply through clean water and hygiene. Every pound bid on this auction will be doubled by the UK Government, meaning this auction can help twice as many people this Christmas.
WaterAid is the official charity of the Q Awards and is also one of the official charities of Glastonbury Festival.
WaterAid’s online Christmas auction runs on eBay from now until Sunday 6th December 2015:
