Catfest is back for 2018! Cancer fundraiser looks to beat last year’s total

Estate agency trainer and consultant Julian O’Dell is gearing up for another fundraiser festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Last year’s event raised over £35,000 for Action Against Cancer and the aim is to beat that total this time around on Sunday, August 26.

O’Dell promises that the mini-festival, named after his wife Cat and held in his garden in Hulcote, Milton Keynes, will include over ten hours of exceptional music, wonderful food and copious drink.

It is a unique festival as everything is included in the ticket price – all hot and cold food, alcohol, soft drinks, cheese, ice cream, coffee, sweets, photo booth and eight great musical acts. All for £85 for adults, £35 for 11 to 17-year-olds, £15 for six to ten-year-olds and free for under-fives.

Sponsors include TM training & development, Rightmove, Elevation Estate Agents, Land & New Homes Network and Reapit,

Acts this year include Bootleg Blondie and rising star Philippa Hanna, regular Catfest star turns Straw Bear, The Alice Band and Fred’s House as well as a few more great acts.

Some fascinating auction lots will be up for grabs with details released soon. There will also be a selection of Julian’s artwork on sale.

Cat said: “As cancer patients, we all need hope. Research for cures or better treatment gives us that hope. We are therefore proud to support Action Against Cancer.”

Aside from the fundraising objective, Catfest aims to celebrate the fact that against all odds, Cat was told she was in remission in October 2016.

Julian said: “We want to continue to celebrate our miracle while helping raise money to ensure other people will be able to celebrate their own miracles in the future. The fact that Catfest is the best party ever while raising such a great total makes all the hard work and sleepless nights worthwhile.

“There will a good many folk from the property sector coming along, but the more the merrier – get in touch with me if you’d like to join in the fun or support the event.”
