SPINAL RESEARCH UK CHARITY AUCTIONRead more ...
I'm running the London Marathon for Spinal Research! If any of you can spare a few quid for a great cause - thanks very much! It could do a lot of good ...
I’m getting involved after years of watching my godfather promoting the charity and the great work they do following his unfortunate injury in 2002. He was involved in a car crash and lost all feeling from the neck down, however, following rigorous treatment and physio for the intervening 16 years, now has a range of movement from the waist up. As someone who has experienced the fantastic work of Spinal Research first hand, he cannot praise them enough. He has been lucky enough to have the support of charities like Spinal Research, and I would love more people to be able to benefit from such great treatment.
The work Spinal Research does in funding and supporting pioneering new treatments is key in the continuing battle to make spinal injuries non-permanent.
Spinal Research is the UK's leading charity funding over 140 research projects around the world. Thanks to their innovative research, paralysis can now be treated and scientists stand on the brink of applying therapies that will restore movement and feeling to transform the lives of people living with paralysis. Anything you are able to give will make a huge difference, especially as Spinal Research receives no government funding so any donation will be really meaningful.
For those of you who may be interested, as part of my fundraising, I am running this charity online auction for Spinal Research. There have been some really generous donations already including support from across the sporting community from the Brownlee brothers, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Williams F1 amongst others! Bids will go live in early April.
If anyone would like to donate or sponsor a lot, please get in touch.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.
