Welcome to the Ascot Race Day Online Charity Auction

 We have a wonderful selection for our auction with some incredible 'once in a lifetime' lots to bid on and many are items that usually money just can't buy!  Every item has been generously gifted to us in aid of The Lord Mayor of London's Charitable Appeal.  For many decades now, the annual Lord Mayor’s Appeal of the City of London has raised millions of pounds for charities and good causes recommended by successive Lord Mayors.  The 687th Lord Mayor of the City of London is Alderman Alan Yarrow and the charitable theme for his Appeal is creating wealth, giving time and supporting people. The funds raised over his 12 months in office will support the essential work of the Appeal’s two main beneficiaries: Scope and Mencap.

This year, the Lord Mayors Appeal also recognises the huge contribution to the life of the City made by the arts and the schools that nurture its brightest artistic talents. Key to this has been supporting young people’s innate talent by giving them the time and the environment in which to thrive, from all walks of life, irrespective of background, the great cultural institutions of the world are taking this talent and giving it a platform. The Royal Ballet School, the City & Guilds of London Art School and the Royal Academy all operate within our great city but their influence and impact can be felt on a truly international basis.

So please help us raise as much for all these wonderful charities as we can and remember to share this with your friends as a joint bid may be the successful winning bid for a fabulous holiday  or a City experience. 

Bidding on this auction will commence online at 9 p.m. on 15th April, and will close online at noon on 28th April. The highest bids from the online auction, and any proxy bids placed will then be carried through to a live silent auction at the luncheon on 29th April. So, even if you are unable to attend the luncheon, please do place a bid on this page. Your proxy bid (the maximum you are prepared to pay) will then be carried through to the live auction, and we will inform you after the event has ended whether you have been successful.

Close.

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.
