The Culture Club singer and Voice UK coach has given Worthing Scope one of his hats and a signed picture, which the charity will be selling online at the end of the month to raise funds.

George’s orange hat was designed by Philip Treacy, whose designs have been worn by the royal family and celebrities such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Grace Jones.

This and a 42 by 59cm print signed by George and photographer Dean Stockings will be sold on an Ebay auction on Wednesday, June 29.
