Mumford & Sons donate guitar to One Community
POP band Mumford & Sons has struck a chord with a Huddersfield group helping charities and communities in the town.
The indie and folk band, which entertained fans at Greenhead Park earlier this month, have donated one of their guitars to One Community, the community foundation for Kirklees.
The guitar was handed over by Katherine Hannah and Adam Pope, of BBC Radio Leeds, at One Community’s offices at the Railway Street premises of law firm Chadwick Lawrence.
The guitar, which has been signed by band members Marcus Mumford, Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshall, will be used to raise funds for One Community, which provides grants for charities and community groups operating in Kirklees and encourages business and individuals to support local voluntary groups.
One Community spokesman Paul Johnson said: “We are extremely grateful to Katherine and Adam and also to Mumford & Sons for donating this fantastic guitar to us.
“It is becoming increasingly difficult to raise funding in the current economic climate, but having such an incredible gift will hopefully help us to raise money at a future event.”
