Meanwhile, Liam has also donated to NHS Fest, a fundraising raffle in support of frontline healthcare workers.
He has donated one of his famous parkas to the prize pot.

Liam’s tour manager Ben Pomphrett launched the project, which is also being supported by The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
As well as the former Oasis star, Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol and Arctic Monkeys gave all donated prizes.
The rocker isn’t the only one putting on a free concert for NHS workers, with Manic Street Preachers also announcing two shows in Cardiff, one free won for NHS staff and another to benefit the NHS.
The Script and Rick Astley are also among those doing events for the NHS.
