Friends of Central London Samaritans Supper and Auction

Read more ...


Central London Samaritans is holding its first fundraising Supper and Auction on Thursday 26th April.   All funds raised will go towards keeping the Samaritans' phone lines and doors open all the year round for callers and visitors needing confidential emotional support.

As part of the event we are holding Silent and a Live Auction.  This is a terrific opportunity for you to participate in this year's fundraising even if you are not attending the event.  Both Silent and Live Auction prizes can be viewed on this page, with over 30 lots to choose from.

You can bid online on the Silent Auction lots on this page until midday on Wednesday 25th April. The highest bids from the online auction, and any maximum bids placed, will then be carried through to the live silent auction at the Dinner on 26th April. So even if you are not able to attend the event, please do place a proxy (maximum) bid on this page. Your maximum bid will then be carried through to the live silent auction and we will let you know after the event has ended whether you have been successful. 

For more detailed information on how to register and bid, please click on the 'Auction Guide' below.

On this page you can also see the exclusive lots from the Live Auction taking place on the night.  These all have the Live Auction banner and are at the bottom of the page.  If you are interested in any of these lots but are unable to attend, please contact Alison Braganza on a.braganza@cls.org.uk to place a proxy bid in person.

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.
