“As Gibson continues the relationship with Noel Gallagher there is no better way to start 2024 than by supporting a truly amazing cause that is close to both our hearts and minds,” says Lee Bartram, Head of Marketing, EU and UK, Gibson Brands. “We have worked closely with The Teenage Cancer Trust for many years, and it’s always an honor and privilege to support them in raising much needed funds and awareness for the work they do.”

“Teenage Cancer Trust’s musical history started in 2000 with the launch of our iconic annual series of shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Noel Gallagher was there for that very first performance, and as an ambassador of the charity has been relentless in his support of young people with cancer ever since,” says Jane Ashton, Head of Music and Entertainment, Teenage Cancer Trust. “These guitars are steeped in their own musical history, celebrating the iconic moment one British music legend gifted a priceless guitar to another, like the handing of a baton. Our sincere thanks to Gibson guitars, long-term supporters of Teenage Cancer Trust, and our Ambassador Noel Gallagher. The money raised will make an enormous difference in the lives of young people with cancer and could fund two Outreach nurses for an entire year, helping us to reach more young people in the UK no matter where they live.”
