Following the recent announcement of a collaboration between lifestyle brand Fly53 and New Model Army and long term designer Joolz, to create a limited edition reprint of 53 of the iconic ”Only Stupid Bastards Use Heroin” T shirts which the band famously wore on Top of the Pops in 1985 and resulted in their being banned from the show, the first 20 of 40 have were successfully auctioned on ebay. All of the income is going to Bridge, a drug rehabilitation charity based in Bradford.
The first auction collected £1648.70 or an average £82.43 a shirt!!
Said Chief executive Jon Royle "Bridge is very grateful for the generous donation of funds from this first auction phase. We will be using the money to support our clients and their families to achieve recovery from addictions.
The second set of 20 t- shirts were on auction until Sunday 8th December through the same ebay account. We would like to thank everyone who took part in raising money for this great cause and hope to have the final total up in the next few days.
