The Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay and Blur’s Damon Albarn are all donating items to be sold at a charity auction beginning today on eBay (22 January) to raise funds for Haiti earthquake victims, auction organiser and Glastonbury supremo  Emily Eavis has said. The items on sale will include an offer from Albarn to record a specially written piece of music, the white Fender Stratocaster played by Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner in the band’s first video, and Coldplay singer Chris Martin’s signed Viva La Vida tour jacket. All proceeds from the 10 day sale will go to charity Oxfam’s work in Haiti.

If you don’t fancy buying Chris’s used jacket or a second hand guitar you can donate to Oxfam’s vital efforts in Haiti at http://www.oxfam.org.uk/ – it is VERY easy! Please help.
