Celebrities support AAC!

Seventy-four music legends have so far signed guitars to be auctioned in support of Action Against Cancer! This includes Jools Holland, Brian May, Lulu, Ronan Keating, Tom Walker, The Vamps, Craig David, and a Spice Girl! The aim is to have 100 Hitmakers get involved, and you can see the full list of the celebs taking part so far on the dedicated website here.

The project is the brainchild of passionate Action Against Cancer supporter, Julian O’Dell, who is always looking for introductions to more hitmakers. If you know any musical celebs that might be happy to sign a guitar, or if you have any guitars to donate, please do contact

If you would like to buy one of the guitars, you will be able to do so on eBay during March to August 2020. For updates, please check the project Facebook page here.

Action Against Cancer supporters may recognize Julian’s name as the organiser of the fabulous annual music festival in support of our work, Catfest. Tickets are on sale now for this summer’s party on August 22nd, but there aren’t many left, so be quick! Check out the website here.

Enormous thanks to Julian and his wife Cat for their huge efforts in support of our research, and for all the individuals (famous and not!) who make 100 Hitmakers Against Cancer and Catfest the successful and glorious projects that they are.
