 New stretch target

If we smash the initial target, then we will push on to the next milestone - All funds go to the Brain Tumour Charity!

James is a talented chef who has spent his life pursuing his passion for food. 

In 2022 James was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour, which has given him a new perspective on life. Despite his illness, he has remained determined to make the most of his time and has decided to auction his collection of cookery books to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Association. 

The cookery books in James' collection are his pride and joy, and he has collected them over 20 years in the industry. The 150+ books represent a lifetime of learning and exploration in the world of food and butchery. 

His treasured collection includes books from the world's best restaurants and chefs, and it is a testament to his dedication to his craft. 

They range from unique and out of print books to accessible books, to say that from new to replace is a £4k + collection. The El Bulli collection alone is retailed at £500 and Sergiology book also retails over £500.

Since the diagnosis of a grade 4 inoperable brain stem tumor, James has discovered that brain tumor research receives only around 1% funding. The importance of raising funds for the Brain Tumour Association has never been more important, and he is auctioning his beloved collection to help others in need.  It is a selfless act that speaks to James' character and his desire to make a positive impact in the world, even in the face of adversity.

James hopes that his contribution will help others who are also affected by brain tumours, and he is grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in this way. He has met amazing people who also want to help, and he hopes that with more available funds, they will be able to help more people in the future.
