The Prize

To commemorate War Child’s 30th anniversaryPaul McCartney is generously offering a unique opportunity for fans.

He will be donating one extremely rare, limited edition copy of The 7” Singles Box Set to War Child

The box set contains 80 career-spanning 7” singles, personally curated by Paul.

Released in 2022, the box set is limited to 3000 copies worldwide and sold out immediately upon its announcement. 

You have a chance to win this highly exclusive box set. Paul has been a valued supporter of War Child for many years, collaborating with us to produce music and raise funds for our vital work in conflict zones. His dedication began in 1994 when he contributed a wood carving to the Little Pieces From Big Stars exhibition. 

In 1995, Paul joined forces with a supergroup called ‘Smokin Mojo Filters,’ featuring Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Steve Craddock, Carleen Anderson, and Steve White. Together, they covered The Beatles’ classic ‘Come Together’ for War Child. This remarkable track, recorded at Abbey Road, served as the closing piece on War Child’s iconic album ‘The Help Album,’ which raised an impressive sum of over £1.25 million. 

 In 2003, Paul generously donated an alternate version of ‘Calico Skies’ to an album released in support of victims of the Iraq war. Furthermore, in 2009, he lent his support to War Child’s ‘Heroes Legends’ album.  

War Child are grateful for Paul’s support over the years, and we are thrilled that he has chosen to donate this exclusive box set in celebration of our 30th anniversary. His contribution will undoubtedly make a significant impact to the lives of thousands of children living in conflict zones.

The Cause

At War Child we are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child affected by war.

We work in some of the hardest to reach places to support those who are hardest hit. We aim to reach children as quickly as possible when conflict breaks out and stay long after the cameras have gone to support them through their recovery. We work with local communities and governments to help protect and educate children, and support them to heal and learn, for a safer, brighter future.

We understand children’s needs, respect and stand up for their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do – because one child caught up in conflict is one child too many. Every day, our local teams are in communities and in refugee camps creating safe spaces for children to play, learn and access psychological support, and we specialise in responding rapidly to emergency crisis situation to deliver immediate and critical care to help to those who need us most, when they need us most.

At War Child, we will never give up on children affected by conflict.
