Tony Iommi will auction items to help fight against coronavirus

Guitarist Tony Iommi will auction items from his personal collection to raise funds and help fight the coronavirus.


In an statement Tony Iommi said:

“We were about to announce a charity “evening with Tony Iommi” to raise some money for the Birmingham hospitals, when this awful virus struck. Now as all charitable events have been cancelled, I wanted to still do something to help. So, I’ve put a few things together of my own up for auction. All the money raised will go to the Birmingham’s Heartlands hospital charity.”

“Please! I hope that you can help, they really do need our support ! Without these doctors and nurses, what would we do….we owe them so much! Tony”

Covid-19 in the United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II recorded a message addressed to the nation. It will be broadcast in April 5 and she will ask the British to overcome the time of “pain” and “huge changes” that the new coronavirus pandemic has brought.

In a fragment of her advance speech at Buckingham Palace, the 93-year-old British sovereign admits that the disease is causing suffering among citizens due to loss of life. As well as “financial difficulties for many and enormous daily changes in everyone’s lives”. The United Kingdom has, so far, 4,300 dead and almost 42,000 infected with the coronavirus.

The United Kingdom will have to impose more restrictions on outdoor exercise if people break the isolation rules designed to curb the transmission of the coronavirus, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Sunday.

The country most affected by the coronavirus in the world is the United States. That has in New York State the epicenter of the problem.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
