A host of rock icons, including Noel Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, The Who, Stereophonics, AC/DC and Depeche Mode have donated some awesome items for a Teenage Cancer Trust auction. And there are also some cool items from the world of TV to bid on as well, including signed Line of Duty goodies.

The TCT Star Boot Sale fundraiser runs until May 12th, and if you fancy bidding, there are some excellent items up for grabs, including flights to New York and a VIP experience at The Who’s concert at Madison Square Garden. You can also bid on rare guitar plectrums donated by Ed Sheeran, and a T-shirt signed by Ed. Noel Gallagher has also autographed a T-shirt and pair of his trainers, and there’s a signed Depeche Mode guitar and an AC/DC-signed poster.

The auction, which has been live since April 29th, also has items from Take That, Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals, Jake Bugg, Paul Weller, Jools Holland, and The Vaccines

Away from music, there are signed Line of Duty scripts and a promo photo in the auction, and signed stuff from the likes of Holly Willoughby, Rob Beckett, and Tuppence Middleton from Downton Abbey.

The Who’s Roger Daltrey, who is also Teenage Cancer Trust’s Honorary Patron, said: “The last two years have been really tough for Teenage Cancer Trust and the young people we support, but the unconditional support myself and the charity have received from the music and entertainment industry throughout this time has been unwavering and I cannot thank them enough for that.”

Daltrey continued: “It’s only because of this support that we were able to get back to the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Gigs after a two-year hiatus last month. The Star Boot Sale is another brilliant way for people across music, film, television and sport to get behind the charity and make sure Teenage Cancer Trust can keep funding its specialist units and staff who offer world-class care and support.”

He added: “Some of the amazing headliners from our shows this year and previously have donated items, so it is a great chance to own a piece of unique entertainment history.”

As well as an auction, there is also a raffle, where tickets for the chance to win some cool prizes, can be bought for a fiver.
