Radiohead have donated a test pressing of their seminal 2000 album 'Kid A' to an online raffle.
The incredibly rare piece of memorabilia will be sold online by Gig Buddies, a music charity that aims to pair adults with learning disabilities (and/or autism) with appropriate volunteers, who can then attend live events together.
It's a hugely rewarding cause, with Adam 'Dev' Devonshire from IDLES organising an online raffle to raise funds.
The event takes place this weekend, and incorporates performances from Willie J Healey, TV Priest, and more, with all funds going towards Gig Buddies.
Radiohead have donated a test pressing from 'Kid A', which is bound to catch the attention of fans.
Other items have been donated from The National, Mogwai, Sharon Van Etten, Slowdive, Laura Marling, and Mercury winners Young Fathers, amongst others.
