Clash drummer auctions prized Mini Cooper

Yesterday we reported that Bonham's auction house in LA was to auction one of Bonzo's gongs. Now, here's your chance to own another slice of drum memorabilia and help a great cause in the process.

NME.com reports that The Clash drummer Topper Headon is selling his prized Mini Cooper car in aid of the Strummerville charity.

The customised motor will be sold off in a raffle to raise funds for the organisation, which aims to give young musicians a leg-up, and was set up following the death of The Clash's frontman Joe Strummer in 2002.

Raffle tickets cost a paltry £10, and will be available from Strummerville.com from tomorrow (May 30).

In a statement headon said: "This car has been my pride and joy. I had it two-tone customised and it was the first car I drove when I got clean, so you can imagine I've been attached to it and have loved it a lot.

"But I so love the great work that Strummerville are doing, so am delighted to donate the car to be raffled. I hope it will make a fortune for the charity. Giving kids a chance is such a good cause."

The raffle will be drawn on July 13.
