The Darkness star selling off stage clothes for charity

The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins is selling off his old stage outfits to benefit a British animal charity.

Among the items the rocker has put up for sale on auction website eBay.com are a pair of Dolce & Gabbana silk trousers.

Announcing the clear-out on Twitter.com, the I Believe in a Thing Called Love singer writes, "I still love these outfits but I’m not going to wear them again!"

Hawkins plans to donate half the proceeds to animal welfare charity The Mayhew Animal Home.
