Brian May of Queen has donated a signed 8″x10″ picture of himself.

Hifi Pig Magazine heard about a young guy and audiophile in the USA, Ricky Sterling. Ricky’s story really touched us. This young man has been a paraplegic nearly his whole life after falling from a 6th floor window when he was just 2 years old. Since 2009, Ricky’s insurance have only been able to supply him with a very non-manoeuvrable, hospital type wheelchair that is not suited to his needs, this makes his life uncomfortable and difficult to say the least. Add to that the fact that the tyres are now coming off his chair and you can understand how this is impacting on Ricky’s life.

Ricky is trying to raise money to buy himself a new chair and Hifi Pig wanted to help. We are aiming to raise £3000 to go towards his new chair, which will cost 4500 US$.

To do this we are having a raffle! Those lovely people at Kralk Audio have donated a pair of their BC-30 FL loudspeakers in Statement Silver Oak and the equally lovely Tellurium Q will complement these with a pair of their Black speaker cables up to 2.5m in length. Fabulous people, The Chord Company, have donated a £600, 1.5m Signature Array Power Cable as a prize! This will be given as a separate prize to the speakers and cable.

It costs £5 for each entry, so if you donate more then you get more chances to win! Please donate in multiples of £5 and then share your donation on the Hifi Pig facebook page. I

n the event of us raising more than Ricky needs for his chair, we will send any extra money to UK charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

(which will be drawn in the following order) are:

Kralk Audio Loudspeakers with Tellurium Q speaker cables
Chord Company Signature power cable (county designated plug)
IsoTek mains loom (UK plugs and sockets)
Studio Connection interconnect and mains cable (country designated plug)

Plus there are more to be added over the next few days!
Remember a £5 donation gets you into the draw, the more you donate in multiples of £5, the more chances to win!
