l8signedAt 9pm last night (Thursday) a very unusual item went on offer on the auction website, eBay.co.uk, in aid of a very worthy charity.

With just thirty minutes to go before they hit the London stage with their headline making reunion performance, the four past and present members of Pink Floyd were busy backstage. Not with going over the lyrics, or practicing guitar chords, but signing nine copies of the commemorative programme from the event in their dressing room!

 

One of these nine went to British Airways for their children's charity. Shuki Sen, for and on behalf of Pink Floyd Management, very kindly gave Oxfam one of the remaining eight, very rare signed programmes for their charity auction.

Oxfam GB is a development, relief, and campaigning organisation that works with others to find lasting solutions to poverty and suffering around the world. They believe that everyone is entitled to a life of dignity and opportunity; and they work with poor communities, local partner organisations, volunteers, and supporters to make this a reality. Oxfam's goal is a world where every person is: Secure, Skilled, Equal, Safe, Healthy, Heard.

The auction, which runs for ten days (finishing at 9pm GMT on November 19th), is a very rare opportunity to get your hands on a genuine set of the band's autographs, obtained during a momentous day, whilst helping Oxfam to raise the maximum amount of money to help the work they do in impoverished countries.

Bidding is up and running now; so, good luck in your bid on a piece of pop history!

Our thanks to David Russell from Oxfam Music for the info.
