Coldplay's End Of The Decade charity auction to benefit Kids Company has raised a massive £251,482.

“The text messages were flying around last night and it’s fair to say that the band are just as excited/grateful/amazed by the enormous total as Kids Company are,” said Chris Martin and the band. “A huge thanks to everyone who bid and helped make the Clearout Sale such a success.”

A huge amount of instruments and band paraphernalia was up for grabs, including Jonny Buckland’s Viva Thinline ‘72 Tele guitar, which went for £15,000, and the costume worn by Chris Martin in the ’Strawberry Swing’ video.

Kids company provides practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children and young people, in particular those with severe emotional, behavioural and social difficulties, resulting from significant experiences of trauma and neglect.
