“The Tony Iommi auction to benefit the Birmingham’s Heartlands hospital charity is now live! All items are from Tony’s personal stash, all will be autographed, and the winner will get free shipping to wherever, that includes the Epiphone SG guitar! Some of the others include a Japanese DVD set of “The End Live in Birmingham”, a Dehumanizer 2CD set, and many more! You can view all the items for auction here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/queenelizabethhospitalcharity The shipping won’t be next day, but you won’t have to pay for it, and all proceeds will go straight to the charity.”
Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) has announced that he will be auctioning off some personal items to raise money for Birmingham’s Heartlands hospital charity. The auction is currently set to launch on Monday (April 6).
We were about to announce a charity “evening with Tony Iommi” to raise some money for the Birmingham hospitals, when this awful virus struck. Now as all charitable events have been cancelled, I wanted to still do something to help. So, I’ve put a few things together of my own up for auction. All the money raised will go to the Birmingham’s Heartlands hospital charity.
Please! I hope that you can help, they really do need our support ! Without these doctors and nurses, what would we do….we owe them so much! — Tony”
