Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Metronomy and Alt-J are amongst the artists who have contributed items to charity jumble sale, 'The Music Circle Presents: Rumble in the Jumble 3'.

Set to take place on April 26 at London's Oval Space from 12-6pm, the event will raise money and awareness for women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, "who face constant threats of forced displacement, sexual violence, abduction and extortion". The jumble is being put on in conjunction with Oxfam.

Amongst the items up for sale are Annie Lennox's handwritten lyrics to Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)', as well as Joe Mount from Metronomy's shoes, the 4 track Brett Anderson of Suede demoed 'He's Dead' on, Tinie Tempah's trainers, Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs' denim jacket from the band's 2010 tour and Zane Lowe's jacket.

Jonathan Higgs of Everything Everything has donated a shirt he wore on a recent tour and Ed Macfarlane of Friendly has given a pair of his 'stage dancing slippers'. Meanwhile, shoes worn by Shirley Manson in Garbage's video 'Blood For Poppies', and a suit from Alt-J will also be up for grabs. Other music and radio stars to donate items include Arctic Monkeys, Gemma Cairney, Jessie Ware, Paloma Faith, Lauren Laverne, Bat For Lashes and Anna Calvi. For more information, visit Entry costs £3 and shoppers must also bring a bag of their own jumble to donate.

The Music Circle is a subsidiary of Annie Lennox's The Circle. Set up in 2008 by Annie Lennox and Oxfam, The Circle is a partnership of influential women who work with Oxfam, bringing ideas, skills and resources to the table to help Oxfam fight poverty and inequality. To date, The Circle has raised almost a million pounds for Oxfam.
