Welcome to The Lord Mayor’s Ascot Race Day Auction raising funds for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
This year’s Appeal aims to educate, support and inspire our young people through the innovative initiative of three terrific organisations: the London Symphony Orchestra’s Discovery programme, St Paul’s community projects in East London, and Music in Hospitals.
Three charities that make a tremendous difference in supporting social mobility, encouraging excellence, and enhancing health, welfare and quality of life.
Bidding on this auction will commence online 9 am on Monday 24th April, and will close online at noon on Tuesday 2nd May. The highest bids from the online auction and any proxy bids placed will then be carried through to a live silent auction at Ascot on 3rd May. So, even if you are unable to attend on the day, please do place a bid on this page. Your proxy bid (the maximum you are prepared to pay) will then be carried through to the live auction and we will inform you after the event has ended whether you have been successful.
Thank you for all your support and good luck with your bidding!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.
