The first day of the nineteenth Yorkshire Charity Clay Days will be held in the iconic and beautiful setting of Duncombe Park, Helmsley on Monday 14th May 2018.
The aim of the event is, of course, to raise as much money as possible for our nominated charities Marie Curie and Ryedale Special Families.
All silent auction lots will be open to online bids before the event until 4 pm on Friday 11th May 2018 when online bidding will be suspended. If you are solely bidding online prior to the event, we strongly recommend that you place a proxy, or maximum, bid on these pages to avoid disappointment. Your proxy bid will be carried over to the live event where bidding will be available at the venue only, but will continue on your behalf until it reaches your maximum.
If you are still the highest bidder at the end of the event, we will contact you later in the week.Thank you for your support.
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.
