You can win a guitar signed by Liam Fray in a prize draw for a worthy charitable cause

Rather fittingly, the prize draw ends of 'The 17th' — we see what you did there.

Much-loved Manc musician Liam Fray is helping give away a signed guitar to help raise money for charity and you can get your hands on it.

The best bit is that everyone has a chance of winning because rather than auctioning it off to the highest bidder, Fray and the organisers have made it part of a prize draw where simply donate to the cause in order to enter and you can pay just a fiver for five entries.


Signed by The Courteeners frontman himself, the one-of-a-kind instrument is a Fender Acoustic guitar with a Dreadnought body and is adorned in a captivating black and sunburst finish, with a mahogany neck, back and sides, coupled with a natural walnut bridge. In a word, it’s gorgeous.

The purpose behind the prize draw fundraiser is to raise vital funds for Sandiway Primary School down the road in the Cheshire market town of Northwich.


With Fray being a close friend of a parent at the school and from nearby Middleton, he didn’t hesitate to help out and was quickly put in touch with the Sandiway Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and offered to sign the beautiful guitar.

The money raised from the charity prize draw will go towards helping the school acquire essential equipment and experiences for their children: a brilliant cause that’s well worth getting involved with, especially when you can donate however much you want and all stand an equal chance of winning.


Autographed memorabilia like this usually goes for thousands and thousands of pounds and the crowdfunding page has already reached over £1,000 in donations through prize draw tickets, and that’s only with around 100 people having entered — imagine how much we can raise if we get more involved.

There is a minimum entry prize of £5 per ticket but, as mentioned, you pledge however much you want beyond that and for those strapped for cash, you can ever enter for free by sending a letter or a postcard to the school itself.

You can enter the auction to win the signed Liam Fray guitar and see full terms and conditions for the competition HERE. The prize draw ends at 6pm on 17 March and the winner will be revealed on Sandiway Primary’s Facebook and Instagram the following day.


Big up to Liam, Sandiway and everyone involved in setting up this worthy fundraiser; we always love coming across stories like this and it’s yet another example of music culture bringing us all closer together.

Best of luck to everyone who enters and let’s raise some decent numbers for this North West school, shall we?
