LIVE: Hampshire Cricket Charity Auction NEW LOTSRead more ...
Following the popularity of the initial lots made available in Hampshire Cricket’s online charity auction a new batch of lots – courtesy of the Club’s generous donors – have been added and are open for bidding now.
Keep checking back as new lots will be added regularly throughout August.
Hampshire Cricket’s online charity auction is raising funds for Southampton Hospitals Charity and the Hampshire Cricket Foundation, and forms part of the ECB’s Together Through This Test campaign, a series of initiatives implemented by the cricket family during the COVID-19 pandemic aimed at supporting worthwhile community projects.
Proceeds raised by the auction will help fund a new rehabilitation space within University Hospital Southampton’s general intensive care unit, the requirement for which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, while also funding the life-saving cardiac screening programmes run by the Hampshire Cricket Foundation.
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.
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.
