Clash drummer raffles Mini Cooper for Strummerville
The Clash drummer Topper Headon is selling his prized Mini Cooper car in aid of the Strummerville charity.
The customised motor will be sold off in a raffle to raise funds for the organisation, which aims to give young musicians a leg-up, and was set up following the death of The Clash’s frontman Joe Strummer in 2002.
Tickets cost £10, and will be available from Strummerville.com from Saturday (May 30).
Headon said of the giveaway in a statement: “This car has been my pride and joy. I had it two-tone customised and it was the first car I drove when I got clean, so you can imagine I’ve been attached to it and have loved it a lot.
