The Heavy Metal Truants Monster Rock auction is go!
The biggest rock auction of the year has been launched
The Heavy Metal Truants charity auction is back for another year and this time they're packing some serious heat for prizes.
With items ranging from a Queen bone china tea set, an Iron Maiden gold disc, a signed Slipknot keg drum, a Rush white label vinyl and a signed Judas Priest guitar.
Speaking about the auction, Truants co-founder and Metal Hammer Editor-In Chief Alexander Milas says: "Forget what you've heard about the music industry. When we asked the great and good of our world to help they answered the call, and this year's Monster Rock Auction is bigger than ever. Huge thanks to everyone who donated so many truly superb items. Everything goes to help the incredible work that the people at Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline do. Get bidding and help us spread the word!"
The Heavy Metal Truants are a charitable fundraising organisation co-founded by Metal Hammer editor-in-chief Alexander Milas and Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood. Now in its third year, it consists of a 168-mile charity cycle ride from London to Download festival, a raffle and auction. Truants have already raised over £167,000 for Childline, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Nordoff Robbins – now it's your chance to help!
