Nick Mason Contributes To Anti-Malaria Charity

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has donated an autographed pair of drum sticks and a book from his personal collection – Chequered History: A Celebration of 50 Years of World Championship Racing – to the American racing team PatrĂ³n Highcroft Racing. Both items will be auctioned off at the organization’s Miles To End Malaria Ebay auction site to help raise awareness and money to battle the disease, which which kills one child every 30 seconds in Africa, according to Malaria No More.
