SSAFA Christmas Auction 2020Read more ...
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885.
Funds raised through this auction will enable SSAFA to provide direct emotional, practical and financial support to those currently serving (both regulars and reserves), to veterans from the Second World War and to those who have served in more recent conflicts, as well as their families.
In 2019, SSAFAs volunteers and employees helped more than 85,000 people in need. In 2020 SSAFA in London has received over 3,000 requests for help and taken on over 500 cases.
The pandemic is fuelling a trend of job loss, benefit delay and debt, all of which means that a greater number of veterans and their families are looking to SSAFA for its help.
By taking part in this auction you will enable SSAFA to support its volunteers and to act immediately by providing food vouchers, essential clothing, crisis accommodation, and treatment for substance misuse.
SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. It is there for that person – at any time, in any way needed, for as long as needed.
The proceeds from this auction will benefit both SSAFA Central London branch and SSAFA nationally.
Thank you very much for your support.
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.
