Snow Patrol donate guitar to charity
Snow Patrol fans will have an opportunity to get their hands on an actual guitar used by the band when it goes up for auction.

The indie band, who hail from Bangor, County Down, originally donated the signed Fender electric guitar to Belfast-based charity Tuesday's Child in 2009, reported the Belfast Telegraph.

However, it has been returned and will be re-auctioned to raise money as part of the charity's Christmas appeal, which is looking to raise thousands of pounds to bring food and relief to vulnerable children.

“It really is a beautiful guitar specially chosen by the band to match our corporate colours," Orla Sheehan, founder of the charity told the newspaper.

She added that the band had previously helped out the charity with some of its efforts.

Snow Patrol have lent one of their tracks to Tourism Ireland's campaign to increase the number of overseas holidaymakers to Northern Ireland.

Tuesday's Child is a charity dedicated to bringing hope to the most vulnerable of children, regardless of their nationality, circumstance, gender or beliefs.
