Bid for Tom’s jacket! 19 May 2009

UPDATE: The auction has now ended, with a whopping winning bid of £6,200. Amazing. A big thanks to everyone who bid.

Hello Everyone,

I’m very excited to announce that I am auctioning off the gold jacket I wore for Keane’s UK Arena tour in Jan/Feb 2009. All proceeds will be going direct to Rwanda Aid, a registered charity that my Dad has run for the last few years. It is helping out people in one of the poorest parts of the world, a place that has been hit by war, famine, mass genocide, earthquakes and the spread of AIDS. Every penny raised goes direct to the cause.

The jacket is a one-off by Christian Dior… so I hope (even in these difficult times) you can dig deep into your pockets! I’ll also chuck in a couple of VIP tickets to a Keane gig of your choice, so that I can hand it over, do some photos and say thank you for the massive donation(!). Or, if you can’t make it to a Keane show, we’ll post it.
