Zayn Malik donates guitar to children's charity

One Direction singer Zayn Malik has given a Scottish children's charity the first guitar he used in the boyband.

The What Makes You Beautiful hitmaker donated the acoustic instrument to Kean's Children's Fund in Dundee, Scotland, along with an autograph and personal message.


The charity's owner, Charlie Kean, hopes to raise $32,000 for his young patients by auctioning the guitar online.


He says, "The boys from One Direction really do support the charity but it's really Zayn and his mum Tricia that are always keen to lend a hand.


"I got a call from Zayn on (the) Sunday before the boys left for America and Tricia posted the guitar this week..."


The boyband is currently in South America on the Where We Are stadium tour.
