Schoolgirl Sarah Sainsbury asked pop stars Coldplay for their autographs to sell for charity – and got a triple platinum disc worth £4,000.
Sarah, 17, wrote to the rockers requesting help with her school's appeal to aid Breast Cancer Care.
She was astonished when the band sent her the signed disc of their album A Rush Of Blood To The Head.
Sarah, of Farnham, Surrey, sent the gift to a London fashion event, where it was auctioned for £4,000.
She said: "I was amazed and delighted when I heard how much it fetched."

Coldplay, The Darkness and Travis are among the acts rumoured to be involved with the re-release of Band Aid's 1984 hit single and, once again, it's to raise money for the ongoing famine in Africa.
Coldplay's Chris Martin (known already for his charity work with Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign), Travis' Fran Healy and Justin Hawkins of The Darkness are all reported to have told original organisers Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure they will make time in their schedule to be involved.
"Chris is one of many artists that has been approached," a spokesman for Coldplay told Xfm, "And we're going to see what develops."
"It's definitely going to happen," Ure explained to The Sun, "I'm very excited. This project is not just about raising money. It's about putting the focus back on Africa and the problem of famine which has not gone away.
