Macca amp goes on eBay for charity

Paul McCartney fans can bid to get their hands on a guitar amplifier signed by him, supporting a charity which combats the threat of landmines.

The new hand-wired Vox AC15H1TV is on sale on eBay for 10 days from Monday.

Vox amps have been used by bands for more than five decades and have been associated with artists including the Beatles.

Sir Paul has led a host of celebrities in signing a petition calling for a ban on cluster munitions.

Sir Paul said: "Cluster bomblets and anti-personnel mines, are unacceptable when they kill and injure innocent civilians including children.

"I call upon individuals, organisations and politicians to do all they can to remove and reduce the impact of these weapons for future generations.

"When a war is over I think it's a cowardly thing to leave the war behind you in minefields that hit women and children and the most vulnerable."

For more information about No More Landmines and bidding for the amp, visit www.landmines.org.uk or go to www.ebay.co.uk/vox.

An eBay spokesman said: "The sale of a signed Paul McCartney amp on eBay UK is a unique opportunity for a true fan to own this one-off item.

"With the proceeds going to a charity close to his heart, we hope it raises a large amount of money for the No More Landmines campaign."


ilu, Macca. :)
