Paulo Nutini has bought Lewis Capaldi’s Chewbacca mask, and is raffling it off for charity

Lewis Capaldi recently auctioned off his infamous Chewbacca mask, worn on stage at TRNSMT, and it’s been snapped up by Paulo Nutini.

After the initial eBay winner backed out, Paulo stepped in to purchase the mask, donating £10,000 to Tiny Changes. He now has plans to raffle it off to raise even more cash for the charity, started by Frightened Rabbit.

From 9am on Monday 29th July, fans can be in with a chance of winning the mask by texting TC to 84902. Texts cost £1, and the competition will close at midnight on Monday 5th August.

"I really wanted to find a way to help out the Tiny Changes Charity,” says Paulo. “Not only am I a big fan of Frightened Rabbit but I was lucky enough to share the stage with them on various occasions - most memorably for me on Hogmanay in Edinburgh 2017.

“Scott was such a great and honest songwriter who was not afraid to convey what he was going through in such a beautiful and honest way. People could hear and read their troubles in his lyrics and be reminded that they were not alone in how they were feeling. That really is the power of music.

“When I found out what happened regarding the money raised for the kind donation from the team at DF Concerts and Lewis Capaldi, I felt like I could help. The idea is now to give people another chance to take it home and contribute to this very important cause. Big Love.”

Lewis’ debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ is out now; he also starred on the cover of Dork earlier this year. Pick up your copy of the issue below.
