Coldplay have raised £251,482 for the Kids Company charity in an eBay auction.
A range of Coldplay memorabilia – including Jonny Buckland‘s Viva Thinline ’72 Tele guitar and an outfit worn by Chris Martin in the band’s ‘Strawberry Swing’ video – went under the hammer in the band’s End Of Decade Clearout Sale, which ended on December 31.
A post on Coldplay.comsaw the band thank fans for getting involved in the auction.
It said: “The text messages were flying around last night and it’s fair to say that the band are just as excited/grateful/amazed by the enormous total as Kids Company are. A huge thanks to everyone who bid and helped make the clearout sale such a success.”
