Pink Floyd’s iconic guitarist and co-lead vocalist David Gilmour hasn’t been very active on social media but recently he decided to post a new tweet on his Twitter account in order to support a good cause.

As you probably know, David Gilmour is not an active user of social media platforms, and his fans often follow his wife, Polly Samson, to get an insight into Gilmour’s life. However, he rarely uses his social media accounts to express his support for family members’ achievements, such as Samson’s novels and his son Charlie Gilmour’s memoir.

In his recent tweet, David Gilmour showed his support for a project created by the famous Newham bookshop, featuring his and Polly’s works. The bookshop has decided to auction David Gilmour’s signed CDs, including one from his own collection, and Polly Samson’s audiobooks.

The aim of the auction is to provide support to local food banks and to give books to local children. This amazing project was wholeheartedly supported by the Gilmour family and David used his Twitter account to promote it.

Here’s what David Gilmour said in his tweet:

“The wonderful Newham Bookshop is auctioning some signed CDs and audiobooks from myself and Polly Samson, in aid of local food banks and to provide local children with books. (The CD of ‘On An Island is my personal copy, hence the faded spine…)”
