Help Nick Mason's local school! Print E-mail

Turning his back on the idea of "We don't need no education", Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason is actively providing support for a local school, in a fundraising event to be held tomorrow (Saturday).

The school in question is North Cerney CE Primary School near Cirencester. Nick keeps his cars near the school and drinks in the local pub that cooks their lunches! They are holding their PTA Christmas Fayre this Saturday (November 25th) between 10am and 2pm at the Village Hall.

Whilst Nick was unable to attend the event, with his customary generosity he has donated two signed items to be auctioned - a copy of his book, Inside Out, and the PULSE CD - to help raise funds.

The school are raising money for a new music room in the Victorian building where space is at a premium. An upstairs store room houses their drum kit as 4 of the 37 children learn drums, 2 guitar, 4 flute and 3 piano! They need about £4,000 to reorganise and decorate, to get equipment/facilities they don't have, and hope to make enough to allow governors to subsidise lessons for some children.

Nick's signed items should help raise some money for them. They are offering these as part of a silent auction, and they welcome bids for them via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone 01285-831310 and leave a bid with Sarah Gardiner, the admin officer.

We wish them luck with the event - and any help that BD visitors can offer will surely be appreciated!

UPDATE - November 27th:  Whilst the school originally decided to hold the auction of these two items on Saturday, they have decided to not close this yet, and welcome further bids.  A good opportunity for you to help Nick's local school, and to bag a rarity, too!

Bids will be accepted until December 17th, so you still have time to participate.
