Covent Garden is proud to partner with charity Only A Pavement Away, to auction off money-can’t-buy prizes from hotels, shops & restaurants across the neighbourhood.
Running from 9am Thursday 25th November until 9pm Sunday 28th November 2021, the ‘Gift For Good’ charity auction will donate all proceeds to Only A Pavement Away, who work alongside a number of foodbanks & homeless charities Crisis, to help those most in need this festive season. Money raised will help the charity on their Winter Warmth mission which collects and distributes essential warm clothing to homeless hostels and people experiencing homelessness this winter.
Launched in October 2018, Only A Pavement Away is a charity who
work to connect people facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans with
new careers in hospitality. Their programme has already placed 155 people into
work and future fundraising will help the charity to reach and connect more
people over the next 12 months. Connecting 250 people into employment will add c.£8million
to the economy, through self-sufficiency and removal of government support.

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.

Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
