Clash drummer raffles Mini Cooper for Strummerville

Money raised will go towards helping young musicians

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.

Tickets cost £10, and will be available from from Saturday (May 30).

Headon said of the giveaway in a statement: "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.
