James Morrison donates signed guitar to charity ball

The singer-songwriter donated the Fender acoustic guitar for future charity auctions.
Great deals on musical instruments
James Morrison has kindly donated a signed guitar to put up as part of future charity balls in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

The singer-songwriter was persuaded by a fundraiser to part with this Fender acoustic guitar and help to generate funds for good causes across the area, and it will be auctioned at upcoming events, Stroud News and Journal reports.

Melanie Wellings managed to get the guitar after successfully organising a fundraising event in February, when she hosted a Valentine's Ball in memory of her younger brother who had died from a heart attack 11 years before.

The event managed to collect a huge £6,000 for the British Heart Foundation and the donation of Morrison's guitar will help to boost interest in future events that take place in the area.

The singer-songwriter last released an album in 2011 with the launch of The Awakening and has a busy summer touring schedule with a number of festival appearances in mainland Europe already announced.
