Morrissey donates autobiography

Morrissey has donated the only signed hardback copy of his memoir to raise funds for animal welfare.
The campaigning singer's book Autobiography became an instant bestseller when it was released in October and he has now donated the one-off edition to Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to auction.
A hardback edition hit the bookshelves earlier this month and Peta said the former Smiths frontman had handed over the only copy with signature, which is to be sold on eBay.
Morrissey has been a long-standing animal activist and a supporter of the charity. Earlier this year he donated a £10,000 sum paid by Channel 4 for the unauthorised use of a Smiths song to fund a campaign attacking Fortnum & Mason for selling foie gras.
The broadcaster had failed to ask Morrissey's permission to use the track Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want when promoting the Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Cookalong Live show in 2011.
