Noel Gallagher's charity single: Oasis star gives away disc to help special school

MANCHESTER - Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has donated a signed platinum disc to raise money for a special school.
Guitarist Noel handed over the disc, which he received for sales of hit single Roll With It, to be auctioned for a charity which supports Lancasterian School in West Didsbury.
The school provides specialist education for 96 children with a range of physical difficulties and complex medical needs.
It recently won a battle to remain on its current site after securing council-funded renovations, but there is a shortfall for much needed equipment.
The disc, signed on the back by Burnage-born Noel, together with a signed letter of provenance, will be auctioned in a sale of rock and pop memorabilia this weekend.
The single, from the band’s second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, reached number two in the UK Singles Chart in 1995, and is expected to sell for more than £3,000.
The platinum disc, presented for sales of more than 200,000 copies, is the star lot in the Omega Auctions sale, to be held at Dunham Massey Village Hall, near Altrincham.
Auctioneer Paul Fairweather said: "It’s safe to say this disc is one of a kind and a must for any Oasis fan."
He will donate his sellers’ commission to the charity, Friends of Lancasterian School, which aims to build a new hydrotherapy unit.
Parent and fundraiser Samantha Hough said: "We were staggered when Noel donated his platinum disc for us to sell. He is a friend of the partner of one of the nursery staff and as soon as he heard we were fundraising, he sent the disc straight away. We are thrilled with his generosity."
"Children benefit so much from hydrotherapy but the present pool is in desperate need of being replaced.
"We need £120,000 to reach our target," she added.
The Omega auction features rare rock, pop and entertainment memorabilia including several Beatles autographs and Cavern cards, rare records, film posters and James Bond material.
Viewing is tomorrow from noon to 8pm and on the morning of the sale from 9am. The sale starts at 11am and will also be live for online bidding in real time at
