Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has rounded up some of his celebrity friends to take part in a charity car-boot sale.
Hot Chip, Mel C, KT Tunstall, Dynamo and Phil Daniels are among the stars who will be manning the sale at the Old Truman’s Brewery in east London.
Some of the items up for grabs include the Blur star’s drumsticks, art by Pete Doherty and Russell Brand’s trousers.
The aim is to raise £100,000 for mobile health clinics to help Syrian refugees and host Jordanians in need.
Rowntree has collected more than 1,000 items for the Star Boot Sale in Brick Lane, with some items available to bid for online.
He said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response.”
Some of the items, such as books start from £1 while a gramophone donated by Coldplay has already reached a bid of £2,000 online.
Former world heavyweight champion David Haye has donated a pair of his boxing gloves while model Sophie Dahl has given clothing including a faux-fur Nicole Fahri jacket and a black Balmain jumper.
Sir Bradley Wiggins has donated a cycling shirt, and actor and actor Paddy Considine has offered his original film cells from the movie Dead Man’s Shoes.
The refugee charity International Rescue Committee estimates there are more than 650,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan, of whom as many as 80% live in urban areas rather than in refugee camps.
Rowntree said: “It’s hard to get basic healthcare services to those people, that’s why mobile health clinics are so vital.”
