A guitar signed by Cliff Richard's guitarist Hank Marvin – of The Shadows – is to be auctioned for charity.
The red Fender Strat has been donated to Kirsty’s Charity, a charity set up by UK man Tom McDonald, whose 16-year-old daughter died of a heart attack in 2002. The charity aims to raise awareness of the need for organ donations and sends gifts to children in hospital.
‘The guitar is priceless and will only appreciate in value over the years," said McDonald. "I’m good at making contacts and Fender were kind enough to send me the Stratocaster which is the best of the best. Hank signed it while he was at a gig at the Hammersmith Apollo London, which makes it even more collectable."
Anyone interested in the guitar, which comes with a Fender gig bag and strap, should contact Tom on 0115 963 0813 or 07812160561 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org by Christmas Eve.
