Paul McCartney

HMV issues limited edition charity calendar of my inspiration icons‚ Children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent to benefit from sales of 2009/2010 HMV calendar featuring the inspiration selections of Paul along with artists such as Dylan, Elvis and other icons.

Music and entertainment specialist HMV is to mark the third anniversary of its acclaimed my inspiration campaign by featuring memorable highlights in a charity calendar for 2009/2010. My inspiration invites iconic and exciting new artists to share with their fans the song lyric or lines of verse that have inspired them in their life and in their work. The proceeds of the limited edition calendar, which has been generously produced for HMV at cost by the UK's leading calendar manufacturer Danilo, will go to HMV's nominated charity CLIC Sargent, which cares for children and young adults with cancer. The calendar comes with two different but equally attractive covers: a standard version highlighting all the featured artists, and a special limited edition run featuring Bob Dylan.

Both versions are priced £7.99 and will go on sale in early September in over 270 HMV stores and can also be ordered online at hmv.com. Sister company Waterstone's is also a stockist.

HMV Marketing Director, Graham Sim, comments: "We've had an amazing response to my inspiration from the featured artists, photographers and, of course, the songwriters. Its success is proof, if any were needed, of the enduring appeal of music, and reminds us that songs and even a simple lyric can hold an intensely personal meaning for us all. We hope that music fans everywhere will enjoy this calendar, in the knowledge that they are also contributing to our charity, CLIC Sargent, and we're grateful to everyone that has given HMV their support in making this possible."

Querida Williams, Head of Corporate Fundraising at CLIC Sargent, adds: "We are thrilled to be benefiting from HMV's acclaimed my inspiration campaign. At CLIC Sargent our inspiration is the children and young adults that we work with. We hope that this year the Icons calendar will help raise vital funds so we can be there for all children and young adults with cancer, every step of the way."
