Skcin Charity Day Auction Preview PageRead more ...
Welcome to the Skcin electronic auction preview page!
The Auction will, as ever, be a centrepiece of the fundraising, and will be in three parts: a web auction from 4th to 17th March, hosted by jumblebee on these pages, along with an electronic silent auction and a live auction on the Day, 20th March, 2015.
This page provides a preview of those lots to be auctioned at the event, either in the electronic silent auction (S) or the live auction conducted by Adger Brown (L).
If you would like to bid on a Silent or Live auction lot, but are unable to attend, you may do so through a ‘commission’ bid or a proxy in the room by mobile phone. Alistair Defriez email@example.com will assist you in making appropriate arrangements.

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.
