Skcin Charity Day at St. George's HillRead more ...
Welcome to the Skcin charity online auction!
A centrepiece of the fund raising is the Auction, which will be in three parts:
Web auction from 4th to 17th March, hosted by jumblebee;
Silent electronic auction on 18th March (“the Day”), hosted by jumblebee; and
Live auction on the Day, conducted by Adger Brown.
Web auction lots may be bid for now and at any time up to the closure of the web auction at 5.00 pm on Thursday 17th March 2016. The leading bid on each web auction lot at that time will secure it, unless any reserve price has not been exceeded, in which case the item will be transferred into the Silent auction.
If you would like to bid on a Web auction lot, please click on the lot and insert the amount of your bid. The minimum increment is shown on each item. There is no maximum bid. Proxy bidding is enabled, so please feel free to enter your desired maximum price if you wish to increase your bid by more than the set increment. jumblebee will automatically bid the set increment on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your bid wins or your maximum is exceeded.
The Silent auction is expected to run from 2.30 pm to 4.45 pm on the Day and the Live auction, from 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm.

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.
