For the release of their reunion album Anthems For Doomed Youth, The Libertines organised a week of events including a pop-up shop in London last September. "The Bucket Shop” - as it was called in reference to an old demo - sold a wide panel of products, from pins to canvases, as well as hot drinks, with a part of the profit going to the Rock'N'Roll Rescue charity. For the occasion, they commisionned special editions of Yorkshire Tea boxes, reading “Peter’s Tea”, “Carl’s Tea”, “Gary’s Tea”, “John’s Tea”, “The Libertines' Tea” and “Bucket Shop Tea".
Despite the significant success of these orignal designs, the boxes were never for sale, much to the chagrin of the fans. Yet, The Libertines showed once again their solidarity with those in needs, organising a lottery for participants to get a chance of winning one of the 10 boxes left. All the proceeds will go to Children in Need, BBC’s corporate charity that aims to help all the disadvantaged children across the UK, providing care for children with physical or learning disabilities. £2,200 have been raised so far.
If you would like to contribute to the cause and try to win a wonderful Libertines Tea box, hurry and donate a minimum of £2 before 5pm today HERE.
