Jack Whitehall: Christmas with My FatherRead more ...
Following the success of hit tv show Travels with My Father, comedian Jack Whitehall and his father Michael will be hosting a special production of Christmas with my Father at St Swithun’s school, Winchester, in aid of George and the Giant Pledge and Winchester Hospice.
Tickets for the event are now sold out, but you can still support these two charities by bidding on our amazing auction prizes.
George and the Giant Pledge (in support of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity)
On 3 January 2017 Vicki and James Woodall (Woody) received the news that’s every parent’s worst nightmare. They were told by doctors at The Royal Marsden Hospital that a lump they’d found on their then four-year-old son’s back was in fact cancer, a rare PNET soft tissue Ewing’s Sarcoma.
Vicki and Woody are trying to make the best of their bad situation and, despite navigating George’s difficult cancer journey, supporting his older brother and trying to maintain some semblance of family life, they’ve pledged to raise £1,000,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity (registered charity no. 1095197) to fund research and support to help beat childhood cancer, so no other family has to suffer in this way.
A plan is in place to refurbish an historic building, Burrell House, on the site of the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester into a dedicated hospice.
The Winchester Hospice will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide much needed local care and support to patients and their families.
We need to raise three million pounds before we can start to convert Burrell House into a hospice.Close.
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.
