Take That - Mark Owen Donates Take That Tickets To Charity Auction
Take That star Mark Owen is boosting a drive to raise $2.4 million (£1.5 million) for a special school near his home by donating 10 executive concert tickets to its charity auction.
The British singer is a patron of The Rainbow Charity, which runs an educational establishment for autistic children in south west London.
Organisers are striving to raise funds so they can provide lessons for even more needy children - and the Shine singer was happy to help out by donating five pairs of tickets for Take That's upcoming sold-out show at London's Wembley Stadium in July (11).
A statement on the charity's official website reads, "Our patron, Mark Owen has kindly donated us 5 pairs of executive tickets from the band's personal ticket allocation, for the Sold Out Take That Progress Live 2011 gig at Wembley on Tuesday 5th July 2011.
"The tickets are for executive seats - not widely available to the general public - so snap up this golden opportunity to watch the gig from the comfort of the best seats in the house and place your bids!!"
The tickets will go up for auction on eBay.com on 30 May (11).
