Sean sings for raided Southampton Oxfam music store
11:10am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
SOUTHAMPTON singer Sean McGowan has helped a city charity store get back on its feet following a £6,000 raid.
Sean held a gig at Oxfam Music Southampton, which lost rare records, music-related items and vital computers holding databases when thieves struck in August.
The theft was branded “callous and disgusting” by police and Oxfam bosses.
Days after the break-in staff launched a Daily Echo-backed drive to replenish their stock by encouraging members of the public to donate suitable items.
People attending the gig were also urged to help out and arrived clutching CDs and in one case a ukulele.
Store manager Rob Milner said: “It was really good fun. Sean’s a nice guy and to give his time in that way was incredibly generous.”
