Andy is auctioning the BPI silver disc he received in 1988 for Erasure’s ‘Two Ring Circus’ album to benefit the Rett Syndrome Research Trust charity.
The award, to mark 200,000 UK sales of the album, has been signed by Andy on the reverse and is available for bids – via eBay – until June 3rd. The auction is open to bids from anywhere in the world, and shipping to the winner is free wherever they are.
Rett Syndrome is the most physically disabling of the autism spectrum disorders. Primarily affecting little girls, Rett often strikes just after they have learned to walk and say a few words, and begins to drag their development backward. This debilitating syndrome includes symptoms seen in many other severe neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders on which Rett research may shed light.
