Manic Street Preachers - Manic Street Preachers Donate Cash To Miners' Families

Manic Street Preachers have been praised for making a "substantial donation" to a fund for the grieving families of the four men who died in a mining tragedy in Wales.
The Swansea Valley Miners Appeal Fund was set up to help the relatives of the miners who were killed after becoming trapped in the Gleision Colliery near Pontardawe last week (15Sep11).
The rockers, who hail from Blackwood, Wales, were moved by the disaster and pledged a "substantial donation", according to Welsh Member of Parliament Peter Hain, who helped set up the appeal.
Other high-profile patrons to donate to the fund, which currently stands at more than $160,000 (£100,000), include British royal Charles, Prince of Wales and Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones.
