Frightened Rabbit drummer Grant Hutchison, brother to frontman Scott, has launched a brand new charity to raise money for the Cystinosis Foundation UK, selling a collection of limited edition postcards designed by numerous indie artists.

Enlisting the likes of The National’s Matt Berninger, Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, Camera Obscura’s Tracey Anne Campbell, Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody, The Naked and Famous’ Alisa Xayalith, and Arab Strap’s Aiden Moffat, Hutchison says the project, titled ‘Line Drawings,’ was an idea I had a couple of years ago. As someone who doesn’t write lyrics I’ve always been really interested in the process and how lyricists get to the final product of a song. I thought that asking songwriters to visualise their favourite lyrics might give an interesting insight in to how they formulate and develop their own words. I contacted a few of my favourite writers and the response was great. I chose to make a postcard set of these drawings to raise money for Cystinosis Foundation UK. The charity is very close to my heart as my niece Morven suffers from cystinosis. It is a very rare genetic condition which forces her to take a large amount of different medications daily. As it is so rare the funding is limited - almost all funds are raised through personal projects like this or event fundraisers. Check the website for more information or if you’d rather just make a donation the justgiving page is below. All the profits from Line Drawings cards go towards CFUK”

You can purchase the postcards here, or donate directly via Just Giving.
