Legendary folkrock band Fairport Convention will launch an online auction today (Friday 22 November 2013) to raise funds for charity.
Visitors to Fairport's website at http://www.fairportconvention.com can bid for a T-shirt signed by shock-rocker Alice Cooper and the other acts who appeared at Fairport's Cropredy festival this year. The highest bidder will secure the T-shirt and the proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).
As well as Cooper, the T-shirt has been signed by members of Levellers, 10cc Peatbog Faeries, Fairport Convention and Fairport Convention themselves. The signatures are on the front so the T-shirt can be framed for display.
The online auction closes on 18 December and the T-shirt will be posted to the winning bidder in time for Christmas.
Fairport Convention is a long-time supporter of TCT, the national charity that helps young cancer sufferers and their families.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
