GLN Scouts Jamboree 2019 - Fundraising Auction

Read more ...

The Underground Explorers are a team of young Scouts & Explorers from North London who are fundraising to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree in North America in 2019.  We're helping to build a better world through building strong global friendships and encouraging international cooperation.  

The Underground Explorers are made up of 36 Scouts and Explorers and 4 Adult Leaders who are working hard to reach the £164,000 fundraising target required for this Jamboree.  This is a worldwide scouting event for around 40,000 young people from across the globe and an international adventure and celebration of cooperation and unity. Some of the funds raised by the Greater London North Scout Jamboree Unit are used to support scouts from developing countries in attending the Jamboree, because without support from the developed world these young people would never be able to attend an event like this. We also work in partnership with other charities to demonstrate our commitment to our communities and to help other people in need.  

Auction is live from 12:01 1 May to 22:00 20 May.

Items will be available for collection from Muswell Hill after payment of winning bids. Any postage required to send items to the winner will be at their expense.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
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.
For example:
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.
