Support Bravehearts and Win a Dire Straits Platinum Disc

October 18, 2022


Mark Knopfler is a patron of Bravehearts of the North East (UK), which is a not-for-profit charity recognising the bravery of children in the area who have shown incredible courage battling to overcome illness, handicap, or other adversities.

Held annually, the Bravehearts Awards are a special event where friends, family, and healthcare workers gather to celebrate the nominees, who are presented with an amazing gift alongside the cherished Crystal Book award.

To help raise funds for the next Bravehearts Awards ceremony, Mark has signed and donated the original platinum disc presented to him in the late 80s for sales of Dire Straits’ compilation album, Money For Nothing; as well as a signed copy of the 2022 remastered vinyl release of the album.


Entries to the prize draw for the platinum disc are open to residents of Great Britain only until 31st October, and the winner will be drawn at random. 

International donations are welcomed, and entrants outside of Great Britain will be in the draw for a chance to win a copy of Money For Nothing on vinyl, signed by Mark Knopfler.
