The percussionist created the Star Boot Sale in aid of humanitarian charity the International Rescue Committee (IRC) after he was moved by the plight of those fleeing Syria's ongoing civil war.

Items put up for auction on included clothing, a jewellery box, tour memorabilia, books, CDs and a milk jug belonging to MCCartney.

A Fender guitar signed by British rock group Coldplay attracted a bid of $3,450 (£2,300) and a jacket worn by Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner to the 2014 BRIT Awards sold for $3,975 (£2,650).

The highest bid of the auction was for an ice cream van which Blur used to promote their Magic Whip album. The truck was sold for more than $13,500 (£9,000).

The Park Life rocker insists he was delighted by the response from both his musician pals and those who placed bids in the sale.

"I'm overwhelmed by the fantastic response we had for the Star Boot Sale," Dave tells WENN. "Thank you to the artists, the bidders and everyone involved in making the first ever Star Boot Sale a superb success.

"This refugee crisis has touched people on a level I've never seen before and it was amazing to witness the outpouring of support from everyday people who just wanted to get involved and do something.

"With the money raised from the auction, the International Rescue Committee will provide essential relief to so many refugees in urgent need of protection this winter, including unaccompanied children who have been separated from their families as they fled for their lives."

The Blur star is planning to make the Star Boot Sale annual fixture and wants to hold another event in the spring (16) which will allow celebrities to sell their memorabilia in person.

"We plan to come back with an actual Star Boot Sale in the spring where the artists will sell their stuff in person," he adds.

"We hope to make it an annual event to support the millions of Syrian refugees across the Middle East who still can't go home as the brutal Syrian conflict enters its fifth year."
