Doc Martens boots customised by stars such as Madonna and Mick Jagger are to be auctioned for charity.

The items will appear on eBay from today to mark the start of National Giving Week.

Boots signed by All Saints, Oasis and Janet Jackson are among the 25 pairs going on sale.

The customised and signed Dr Martens boots were originally part of a collection put together for World Aids Day in 1998.

National Giving Week is organised by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to encourage people to give something up and donate the saved money to charity instead.

CAF spokeswoman Sheila Hooper said: “If people raid their wardrobes, cupboards and attics to find items they no longer need but could sell on eBay for a favoured organisation, we can make a real difference.”

Money raised through the week-long eBay sale goes to various different charities.

Funds raised via the Doc Martens boot collection will go to the National Aids Trust.
