Cares Family Fundraising Dinner: Silent AuctionRead more ...
Help us spread a little love and community across London.
As part of the Cares Family Fundraising Dinner on Monday 30th April, North London Cares and South London Cares are hosting this silent auction to raise money for our summer social clubs across the city.
You are able to bid even if you are not attending the dinner, and there are a fantastic range of prizes for you to bid for, from designer handbags to exclusive spa breaks.
All money raised from these amazing lots will go directly towards tackling isolation and loneliness during the summer, helping neighbours get to know each other within their communities, across generations and across the city.
Bidding could not be easier - just click on the lot that you are interested in and enter the amount you would like to bid. You will be asked to register at the point of placing your first bid.
You may bid on as many lots as you like and as the auction is open to all before the event we encourage you to involve those friends and contacts who are not attending on the evening.
This online auction will run until midday on Sunday 29 April and will then go live on the evening of the Dinner. Any proxy bids will be carried through to the live event - by placing a proxy bid with your maximum amount you will be able to bid against guests at the Dinner even if you are not in attendance.
Winners will be informed by email shortly after the close of the auction on the evening of the event.
If you have any questions, or would like more information, please contact Emily Clarke (Director of Development) on firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
