You could win an electric guitar signed by legendary musician Brian May while raising money for wildlife charities.

Philip White, the owner of Red Badger Records, has arranged for 10 guitars to be signed by the Queen guitarist and they will be auctioned off for 10 different charities which care for badgers.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue centre, in East Huntspill, and Wildlife and Badger Care – a charity which carries out emergency rescues for injured wildlife – are set to benefit from the auction.

Secret World’s founder Pauline Kidner said: “We hope anyone who is a Queen fan will bid for these beautiful guitars.

“Philip has worked hard to find a way to help charities close to his heart and I hope the auction will be a great success for him as well as all the nominated charities.”

The auctions will be held on eBay, with a guitar sold daily. Email for more details.
