Guitar Signed by Van Morrison up for Auction!

Belfast born singer songwriter Van Morrison has donated a guitar to a fundraising benefit for TinyLife, the premature baby charity and the Neo Natal Unit at the Ulster Hospital.

Comber couple Niall and Janine McMenamin organisers of the event commented  ‘Hollie,our beautiful baby daughter was born prematurely at the end of November. We were absolutely devastated to learn that Hollie was diagnosed with a fatal condition. Sadly she passed away just 4 days later at the Ulster Hospital.  We cannot thank enough the Neonatal Team, Midwifery Team (The Ulster Hospital and Laganvalley Hospital) and Tinylife for the excellent care and support we received and continue to receive at this heartbreaking and difficult time.


Our family and friends have been absolutely wonderful .  Linden  Mack  from Belfast Music Supplies generously donated a beautiful solid wood ‘Tanglewood’  Acoustic Guitar complete with case, we were overwhelmed when Van Morrison agreed to sign it.’
