With news of a wedding and a new album in the works, Paul McCartney fans have a lot to look forward to at the moment. And now they have even more – a guitar signed by the former Beatle is going under the hammer to benefit a charity started by a young boy in Scotland.
Shine On Scotland was established by teenager Ryan McLaughlin in 2009 to raise awareness of the importance of Vitamin D in the battle against Multiple Sclerosis. He organized a petition and march that was presented to Scottish parliament that attracted the support of over a thousand people, including Harry Potter creator JK Rowling. He has previously won the Child of the Year Award at the Bighearted Scotland Awards, and also a Pride of Britain Award. Just a few days ago, Ryan was named in Britain’s Top 100 Happy List.
