In such a great cause – please bid for one of Julian O’Dell’s great originals

Roll up, roll up!

Here is your chance to bid for an original portrait by our very own Julian O’Dell.

You can take your choice of any the signed sketched portraits shown below. They can be framed in black or white, according to the winner’s preference, and all money raised will go to Action Against Cancer.

The auction is part of industry trainer, consultant and EYE contributor Julian’s annual fund-raiser, Catfest, named after his wife Cat who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.

Last year, Catfest raised an incredible £31,272 with an unforgettable event of music, food and fun at their home in Bedfordshire.

This year, the couple hope to do even better, with sponsors including Rightmove, Reapit, Moneypenny, EYE and the Negotiator, not to mention generous agents Manning Stainton, Beasley & Partners and Anthony Pepe.

Action Against Cancer is an organisation which focuses on finding cures for different types of cancer, so it is hard to think of a better cause.

So, what are we bid for one of Julian’s superb original portraits?

The auction closes this week,  at 6pm on Wednesday August 2, so you haven’t much time. And just think how great Ed Sheeran would look on your office wall (not that we’re expressing any preference).
