Legendary designer Julien MacDonald, rock Gods Coldplay, Olympics 2012 chairman Seb Coe and former England rugby captain, Will Carling, have all generously donated exclusive goodies to be sold on eBay through Auctioning4u-eBay Drop Off Shop and Online Auction Service Provider, with the proceeds going to cancer charity Cancer Active.
Following on from their successful Cancer Prevention Conference in London 2005, the charity are taking a 3 Dimensional approach and launching CANCER PREVENTION FORTNIGHT on the 13th November this year. They are encouraging everyone to become involved in understanding how much they can do to prevent themselves, and their loved ones, from developing cancer.
Auctioning4u’s Charity Sales Director, Isabella Pawlowski, says: ‘A lot of the time celebrity auctions only reach a small number of people. By using the power of eBay we can appeal to a worldwide audience of 203 million and raise some much needed money and awareness for Cancer Active.’
All the auctions are due to start on 14th November and will run for 10 days. For live links to the auctions keep checking eBay Online Charity Auctions for updates.

While the auctions are online Cancer Active will also be hosting a ‘3D Party’ at ‘24’ Nightclub (formerly Attica) at 24 Kingly Street, Soho on Thursday 16th November, starting at 7.30 p.m. The evening promises to be full of fun and glamour in this new venue, which is already a popular addition to the London party scene. A drinks reception
(canape menu designed by Gillian McKeith of ‘You Are What You Eat’) will be followed by a short speech by one of
the charity founders, Chris Woollams, explaining more about the work of the charity, and various steps that people can take in order to prevent cancer. This event has been organised by Chris’s daughter, Georgina, in memory of her sister, Catherine.
There will also be a charity auction and the opportunity for every guest to take home a ‘goody bag’ of healthy, nontoxic items. Sorry – no chocolate in this one!! The ambience of the evening will be enhanced by background music from a well-known soul singer.
