Iron Maiden Put Their Memorabilia on Charity Auction
British rockers Iron Maiden have proved their generosity to their most loyal followers - by donating memorabilia to an online charity auction accessible only to members of the band's fan club. Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood is training for a fundraising bike ride in Egypt in late January to raise money for Childline and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, which gives disabled children a musical outlet.
And the "Run to the Hills" hitmakers are lending a hand, by auctioning memorabilia including rocker Adrian Smith's guitar, a signed poster for the DVD release of their "Flight 666" tour, and a personalized USA platinum disc - the proceeds of which will go to the two charities.
The 15-day auction, which kicks off on February 2, is exclusively open to members of the band's fan club on IronMaiden.com. Smallwood tells Blabbermouth.net: "This is a twist on us 'getting off our backsides' and doing something to really help as we will be staying on them most of the time, propelling our mountain bikes forward to raise as much money as we can for these two very deserving children's charities."
