Coldplay help flood-hit school

Four-piece donate money for a new piano

Coldplay have donated £3000 to a school hit by last summer’s floods.

The band gave the cash to St David‘s School in Moreton, Cotswolds to buy a new piano after the school’s instruments were destroyed in the floods.

Christina Windridge, a teaching assistant at St David’s, said everyone was “so grateful” for the £3072 cheque, reports dotmusic.

She added: “The money that we would have had to use to pay for the piano has been used to buy other keyboard equipment.”

Meanwhile singer Chris Martin has revealed that Kylie Minogue wrote a track for their forthcoming album ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’ but it was cut from the final tracklisting.
