Acoustic guitarist raises £2,000 for charity

Great deals on musical instruments

An acoustic guitar player has offered himself at an auction in order to raise money for charity.

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly raised £2,000 by making the generous decision to give a fan the chance to buy an intimate performance in their own home, reports XFM.

A fan in Worcester was the victor, which means Sam Duckworth will be taking his acoustic guitar to their residence to play a special show.

The money raised from Duckworth's charity auction will go towards the relief efforts in flood-hit Pakistan, where millions of people have seen their homes destroyed.

Duckworth commented: "A higher than usual monsoon season in Pakistan has caused flooding to ravage this beautiful country. Let's hope we can raise a lot of money to help this nation in times of desperate need."

He has released two albums under the name Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager and Searching for the Hows and Whys, with a third, self-titled record to come in September 2010.
