Jon Bon Jovi has demonstrated his support for ActionAid by donating a Fender Stratocaster to the charity.

ActionAid helps to provide support to people who live in poverty and campaigns for governments in developed countries to provide more support to poorer nations.

It has a host of celebrity supporters and many of them, including Emma Thompson, Lee Mack and Stephen Merchant, attended a recent wine tasting and auction at London restaurant Quaglino's.

The star lot in the auction was a signed Fender Stratocaster provided by the Bon Jovi frontman.

It sold for £3,000, helping the charity to raise a total of £160,000 from the event.

Singer and electric guitar player Bon Jovi is renowned for his charity work, with affordable housing, children with HIV and the Special Olympics among his chosen causes.

The songwriter is also chairman of a non-profit organisation, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, which helps to battle homelessness and poverty in Philadelphia.
