If you’ve been following the James US and Canada tour 2019 on Twitter or on Facebook, you will know that Andy Diagram has been exploring the cities on the schedule on his #LittleRedBike – a Schwinn Tango folding bike – and posting pictures of its adventures.
At the end of the tour, however, he will have to say goodbye to it – and he wants it to go to a good home with a James fan and to raise some money for charity at the same time.
Therefore, he has asked us to arrange a very special extra Raffle for fans, in addition to the Raffle for the unique handwritten and illustrated setlists, the details for which are also in the News section of this site and are also being published on Twitter and via the Facebook groups and pages.
Additionally, there will be 5 specially commissioned 38 page photo books of #LittleRedBike’s adventures, each signed by the band, with photos from each of the cities and venues along the tour route. The bike winner will receive a photobook, along with the next 4 names drawn.
He has chosen a charity that reflects something he cares about deeply, and links his love of cycling with his love of green, environmental issues and nature. Called “Rails-To-Trails“, they work across the US, converting old disused railroads to bike and walking trails and conserving green spaces for generations to come.
Raffle tickets to win the bike – which has also been signed by all band members, photos at the top of the page – and the runner-up photo-books will cost $5 (US Dollars) each, and after shipping costs to the winner, every cent will go to Andy’s chosen charity.
To enter the Raffle, all you need to do is to send us $5 for one entry, $10 for two etc via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a PayPal account, just click on the Send Money option (make sure it’s set to Family and Friends) and enter the email address.
If you don’t have a PayPal account, simply email us at the above address and we will send you a payment request that you just need to respond to with your card details. As we are arranging this from the UK, PayPal enables us to keep payments together and in US dollars, so if you are entering from Canada, please enter in US Dollars rather than Canadian ones (sorry).
The raffle is open to all, but the bike can only shipped to US and Canadian addresses. If someone outside the US or Canada wins, and doesn’t have a north American address, they win a signed photobook anyway and the option of the bike goes to the second person out the hat.
Deadline for both raffles is midnight 30th August, Pacific Daylight Time, and we are planning to do the draw over the weekend of August 31st and September 1st.
