Jeff Christie has signed a guitar for the 100 Hitmakers Against Cancer project, to help raise funds for the development of cures for cancer at leading institutions such as Imperial College London and the University of Sussex.
   The cutting edge programs focus on developing new diagnostics and treatments, to improve the survival prospects and quality of life for millions of cancer sufferers worldwide.
   The project was started in the spring of 2019 by Julian O'Dell, a business consultant from Milton Keynes who has dedicated the past five years to hosting and running Catfest, an annual fundraiser festival named after his wife, Cat, who has been fighting cancer since 2010.
   Its mission is to raise as much money as possible for the charity Action Against Cancer through gathering and auctioning guitars signed by 100 music legends.
   The project has proven to be a great success, with already 114 hitmakers involved, well over the 100 target, and rising.
   Other stars who have contributed include Sir Cliff Richard, Brian May, Lulu, Petula Clark, Ronan Keating and Gilbert O'Sullivan.
   Here's the website.
   Look out for the guitar with Jeff's signature which will come up for auction soon. You can bid here.
