Handicap International Every Step Counts AuctionRead more ...
Co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Handicap International is an independent charity working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster in 59 countries worldwide.
We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their basic needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
We repair lives by providing artificial limbs to amputees, including disabled children in education, clearing landmines and unexploded bombs and caring for injured people in the aftermath of a natural disaster or emergency.
Over the last 34 years, we have changed the lives of millions of disabled and vulnerable people.
On Thursday 9th June, H.E. Madame Sylvie Bermann, the French Ambassador to the United Kingdom will be hosting a private dinner in aid of Handicap International UK’s Every Step Counts campaign.
The campaign raises essential funds to help disabled and injured people walk again by supporting sustainable rehabilitation care in countries that need it most. Countries like, Nepal, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Jordan. Enabling a child to walk again gives them the chance to go to school, get an education and have brighter opportunities for the future.
Please help us to raise as much as possible by bidding on our exciting prizes.
Please note that online bidding on this page will close at 8am on Thursday 9th June. If you are not attending the dinner, proxy bidding is available for you to place a maximum bid which can be carried through to the live silent auction on 9th June. We will contact you shortly after the event if your bid has been successful.Close.
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.
