Frightened Rabbit have announced that they've donated drawings by Scott Hutchison to Creative Climate for a silent auction raising money for the Australian bushfire relief.
Four illustrations drawn by late musician Scott Hutchison have been donated by Frightened Rabbit to the silent auction, that takes place in Glasgow on Thursday (20 February).
The band revealed on Instagram that the drawings were created by Hutchison during "our most fun festival run ever in 2014 as part of a ridiculously good lineup at Laneway Festival."
Hutchison's illustrations are available as a set and individually, and all money raised will be donated to Red Cross Australia. They wrote on Instagram that the auction is "to help the fight against and recovery from the recent fires. Australia is a country where we always felt so welcome and it is heartbreaking seeing what’s happening to such a beautiful place."
