A ukulele signed by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall is to be auctioned to raise money for the charity set up after the Clutha bar tragedy.
Ten people were killed and many more injured when a police helicopter crashed into the roof of the busy Clutha pub in Glasgow’s city centre in 2013.
Proceeds from the sale of the hand-made ukulele will be given to the Clutha Trust, which was founded by the bar’s owner Alan Crossan in the wake of the disaster to support underprivileged children through music and art.
Charles and Camilla signed the instrument when they visited the refurbished Clutha ahead of its reopening in 2015.
Bids are already open for the ukulele, which is expected to fetch between £2,230 and £3,570, via the online auction site Catawiki, and the sale finishes on Thursday October 19.
More than 100 people were enjoying a night out at the pub when a police helicopter returning to its base on the banks of the River Clyde crashed through the roof.
An Air Accidents Investigation Branch report found two fuel supply switches were off and the pilot did not follow emergency procedures after a fuel warning in the cockpit.
