Auction: Refugee Community Kitchen

Read more ...


A group of event organisers, chefs, caterers, journalists and activists - have banded together to help the refugees living in the camps of Calais and Dunkirk. 
They have created a kitchen to provide warm, nourishing food for refugees, including many woman and children, forced to live without adequate shelter or basic provisions in water-logged, muddy and freezing conditions on a landfill site.

The kitchen provides over 2,000 meals a day, making a valuable contribution to the lives of those fleeing wars and finding refuge in Europe, but they need your help to keep providing this lifeline for those most in need. 

 Harry Leslie Smith witnessed Europe’s last great refugee crisis in 1945 as a young soldier. Aged 92 he's traveled to visit Calais to meet a new generation of refugees. His words are particularly poignant. 

"I remember a friend of mine who was a refugee from Serbia telling me in the 1950s how grateful he was for the Red Cross food parcels that he and his brother received in a camp on the outskirts of Vienna. To him, the food represented more than nutrients – it made him believe that the outside world wanted him to live."

The kitchen is providing far more than much needed sustenance. Please bid generously and let those in need know that they are loved and valued. 

Many thanks!

The kitchen also needs volunteers. You can find more info: here

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
