Headon to sell his Mini Cooper for charity

Topper Headon has agreed to sell his customised Mini Cooper in a bid to raise money for the Strummerville charity.

Headon was one of the members of the punk band The Clash, with the charity set up by the family of the band’s iconic frontman Joe Strummer, who died of a heart attack in 2002.

The aim of the charity is to help young people in their quest to break into the music industry and Headon has added his support by donating his Mini Cooper to a raffle.

Fans will be able to pay £10 for a ticket, with all the money gained going to the charity.

Headon said: "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.

"But I so love the great work that Strummerville are doing, so am delighted to donate the car to be raffled."

Among the biggest hits created by The Clash are London Calling, Should I Stay or Should I Go and Rock the Casbah.
