100+ Hitmakers Against Cancer!Read more ...
We organise and auction signed guitars to raise money for Action Against Cancer
The history of 100+ Hitmakers
100+ Hitmakers Against Cancer was started in the Spring of 2019 by Julian O’Dell, a Business Consultant from Milton Keynes.
Julian has dedicated the past 5 years to hosting and running Catfest, an annual fundraiser festival named after his wife, Cat, who has been fighting cancer since 2010.
Catfest has proved to be a huge success with 2019’s event raising £52,607 for Action Against Cancer taking the total raised overall to over £160,000.
100+ Hitmakers Against Cancer was going to be part of Catfest’s fundraising total in 2020, however the pandemic led to the event being postponed until August 2021. Sadly a decision was taken to delay the 2021 event until 2022. Therefore, some of the signed guitars are to be auctioned during 2021 with all proceeds going to the charity at a time when funds are critical.

1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
