The online auction, which also includes a raffle component for select bundles, will go live from 10AM and remain online for one week. Entries will close on Thursday 6th July 2023 at 23:59 UK time. Winners will be announced for each item the following week, with proceeds going to the Heavy Metal Truants chosen charities: Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff & Robbins Music Therapy, Childline, and Save The Children.
HMT co-founder Alexander Milas says about the auction:
“If you’re after hand-written lyrics or a guitar that’s responsible for some of the greatest songs of our age, then this auction is for you! The incredible generosity the rock and metal community has shown is really astonishing, and I can’t wait to see what these remarkable museum-quality items bring for our wonderful chosen charities.”
