Elbow and Radiohead are among the artists donating items to be auctioned in a bid to raise money for Music Beats Mines.

The charity, a campaign by the Mines Advisory Group, aims to help those affected by land mines, particularly in third world countries, where people are still being killed long after a conflict has ended due to the mines still being present. In many cases, whole areas have been abandoned due to fear.

As well as donating several items, last month Elbow’s Guy Garvey made a video promoting the cause, saying: “It’s up to us to get rid of mines and bombs so that people can enjoy the safe walking down the street kind of lifestyle that we do. Music Beats Mines is the answer.”

Radiohead have donated signed artwork from their 2000 album ‘Kid A’. Other things up for auction include the chance to play on the Steinway Grand Piano at the infamous Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, a large Stone Roses signed poster and many others.

The live auction opens tomorrow in Manchester. For more details Click Here
