The Mercury Phoenix Trust Celebrates Freddie Mercury’s 74th Birthday by Launching Auction supporting MPT efforts to raise funds to fight AIDS Worldwide

Exclusive Signed Artworks and Prints and memorabilia, PLUS Personal Donations from Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May


September 5th, 2020 would have been Freddie Mercury’s 74th Birthday, and to
celebrate Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor and the Mercury Phoenix Trust have partnered
with charity auction site givergy to offer fans the opportunity to bid on some truly unique items
and help raise funds in Freddie’s name in the worldwide fight against HIV/AIDS.
Claudia Walker, Head of The Mercury Phoenix Trust says “Thank you all, volunteers and
donors, with COVID 19 still out there the fight is still on, big time."
Due to the Worldwide pandemic, the MPT has not been able to host its regular fundraising
initiatives this year, most notably its biggest annual event, the Official Freddie Mercury Birthday
Party in Montreux, which each year attracts thousands of fans from across the globe. The result of
this, like all charities are facing at this time, is a drop in essential donations and fundraising, so
the auction is a new and vital campaign for 2020 and The MPT.
Launched today, the auction page at www.givergy.uk/MPTrust/, allows fans and collectors to
help support the MPT for the next month by bidding on an array of Queen related items, plus the
chance to buy a ticket for the Sweepstake prize that includes Roger Taylor’s personally donated
sweatshirt that he wore during the incredible Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley
Stadium in 1992 as well as personally selected items from Brian May’s own archive, including
jeans worn during rehearsals.
Roger Taylor said “I bought this top from Daniel James as I wanted something a bit smart, a bit
regal and a bit posh in honour of dear Fred. It was only worn once for the tribute show”
Brian May commented: “We’ve managed to unearth some items relevant to the tribute concert in
my personal archive – they are now all signed and ready for their new homes”
Further items include signed limited edition prints from the sold-out Queen + Adam Lambert
2020 Rhapsody Tour of Asia and Australasia, signed Roger Taylor drum sticks, rare copies of the
currently out of print 2019 'Time Waits For No-One' singles by Freddie Mercury, a Queen Happy
Socks Box Set, and a signed 2017 Queen + Adam Lambert Tour Flag.
