Sir Paul McCartney has donated a rare album to raise funds for the families of Eilidh MacLeod and Laura MacIntyre.

Eilidh, 14, died in the Manchester Arena attack on May 22, while her friend Laura, 15, was seriously injured.

Soon after the tragedy Sir Paul donated a special Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 6 Disc Super Deluxe (50th Anniversary Edition) box-set which will be auctioned to raise funds for the two families, who are from Barra in the Outer Hebrides.

The album will be personally dedicated and personalised to the successful bidder.

It will be auctioned in the run-up to the 40th anniversary of one of Sir Paul’s Wings songs Mull of Kintyre reaching number 1 at Christmas in 1977.

The girl’s parents said the gesture is “amazing and brilliant’.
