Enter to win this signed guitar from Coldplay and help support diversity in British media.

The Guitar is a Telecaster squire by Fender and is signed by Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will.


Funds raised will go towards ending the lack of diversity in British TV.

I am raising funds for the Lenny Henry Centre for Media Diversity at Birmingham City University. We have only been going for just over a year but in that time we have been making waves and creating a better TV and film industry for everyone!

We revealed the racism actors face when they go auditions - our research made international headlines. We exposed the lack of gender diversity of sound recordists for the first time and are now looking at building programmes to address the problem. 

Our groundbreaking research showed the specific problems for disabled people working in the industry and we are now working with all the major stakeholders to fix the problems.

We have worked with Channel 4 to create more job opportunities for Black people behind the camera. We have worked with the BBC changing how the broadcaster reports on race and racism.

And I have barely scratched the surface listing all the things we've done since our launch in the middle of a pandemic. However we are only able to do this important work being a critical friend of the industry and speaking truth to power because we are 100% totally independent. 

But that independence costs money which is why we need your help! Coldplay have generously donated a signed  telecaster quire by fender to go into this prize draw here on Crowdfunder which will help us raise crucial funds. 

Please enter and help us expand the work of the media Diversity Centre.
