A guitar played by Bring Me The Horizon’s Lee Malia in the music video for Ludens and entry to all concerts and festivals run by the Live Nation events company in 2021 are also on offer.

A set visit to filming of series six of Peaky Blinders, as well as tickets to the Peaky Blinders Festival, are included in the raffle.

Snow Patrol, The Chemical Brothers, New Order, Sam Fender and Primal Scream are among the other acts to have donated.

The project has been launched by Gallagher’s tour manager Ben Pomphrett, who said he came up with the idea because he has a partner who works in intensive care.

He said: “With an understanding of how busy they can be in normal times, and the challenges they’re about to face, it just seemed like something worth doing.

“Since I work as a tour manager, and the music industry is now on pause for the foreseeable, it’s a way for me to put my free time to good use, and hopefully do something beneficial.”

The raffle opens at 6pm on Tuesday and closes at 6pm on Friday.
