Noel Gallagher Has Been Secretly Donating Profits From 'Don't Look Back In Anger' To Manchester Charity

Noel Gallagher Has Been Secretly Donating Profits From 'Don't Look Back In Anger' To Manchester Charity

Noel Gallagher copped a lot of flak over the weekend for not coming on stage with his brother, Liam, for the Manchester benefit gig.

Many were hoping that Noel would make an appearance for an Oasis reunion - but sadly we were all left waiting.

Liam didn't hold back his opinion on Noel's 'no-show' either. He took to Twitter shortly after the charity concert and called Noel out:


The reason why Noel was absent was because he was holidaying with his family. But it appears that he hasn't been doing nothing since the devastating bombing last month, which claimed 22 innocent lives.


According to the i newspaper, the former Oasis member has been donating all the funds from the track 'Don't Look Back in Anger' to the We Love Manchester campaign since the attack.

The song has become an anthem for Mancunians in the wake of the tragedy, and was sung by Coldplay at the benefit gig.

So, while Noel didn't front up to the stage at Manchester's Old Trafford Cricket Ground with the likes of Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber; he's been donating money in private to help the victims of the bombing.

There's been no official confirmation from Noel about his secret donations, but he did retweet the i article on his own Twitter page.

The British Red Cross has said that more than $3million (£2.35million) was raised during Ariana Grande's all-star benefit concert on Sunday evening. Earlier in the day, before the show began, the organisation tweeted that its Manchester Emergency Fund had already reached $9million (£7.3million).

That brings the total raised to more than $12million (£9.6million).


Ariana also announced on Twitter: "Uber will make a donation equal to all Uber fares taken to and from #OneLoveManchester to British Red Cross' We Love Manchester Fund."

The fund will help alleviate immediate suffering and ensure victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties, according to the British Red Cross.

To donate in the United Kingdom, you can text 'LOVE' to 70507 to give £5 or donate online via this dedicated British Red Cross page: http://www.redcross.org.uk/LOVE
