    Default Jonny Buckland gives Coldplay disc to Pantymwyn village hall restoration fund

    Jonny Buckland gives Coldplay disc to Pantymwyn village hall restoration fund


    Jonny Buckland grew up in Pantymwyn and met his Coldplay band mates, including singer Chris Martin (pictured) at university

    Coldplay guitarist Jonny Buckland has given a gold disc to be sold at auction to help a village hall restoration fund where he grew up.

    As a child Buckland lived in Pantymwyn, Flintshire, where the hall was the focal point for community events and birthday and Christmas parties.

    Now, as a member of one of the world's biggest bands, he has given the committee restoring the village hall a disc marking 100,000 album sales.

    It is to be sold in London in July.

    "This is an incredibly generous donation from a very special son of Pantymwyn," said a village hall committee spokesperson.

    "We cannot thank Jonny and his family enough for their fantastic support and we hope the disc will do very well at auction."

    The disc marks 100,000 sales in Germany of the band's latest album, Mylo Xyloto.

    Buckland, whose family moved to Pantymwyn, near Mold, when he was four, started playing guitar as a young boy.

    He met fellow Coldplay members during their first week at University College London in the mid-90s.


    The disc will be sold at auction by Bonhams in London on 3 July

    Buckland attended nearby schools Ysgol y Waun in Gwernaffield and Mold Alun High School where he studied A-level music under former teacher Margaret Parr.

    She once described Buckland as having "immense talent for the guitar".

    The village hall committee reckon Buckland used the hall, which has become a registered charity, along with other youngsters for parties and plays.

    But its condition fell into decline before its restoration began thanks to donations from residents from the past and present.

    The proceeds of the sale of the gold disc, which was a gift from music giant EMI to Buckland, will help pay for a new roof.

    The disc, which features the signatures of all four band members, will be sold by Bonhams in London on 3 July.

    Isn't this why we love them this much?

    That is so generous of him. Time and again bands become so big that it get's to their heads but this is just another example of why Coldplay are unique in this respect.

    Their grace, charity and all round good will is refreshing in an industry which is overly obsessed with being opinionated, controversial and downright arrogant. Being in that latter group is not cool and nor is it being "radical". It's just boring.
