ESMS Dinner for DoddieRead more ...
This online auction is part of the ESMS Dinner for Doddie, a very special event taking place on 1 February 2019 at the National Museum of Scotland in honour of Doddie Weir, a much-loved and admired member of our ESMS community.
The proceeds will be shared between the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, which is raising funds to aid research into MND, and the ESMS Access to Excellence bursary fund. We are confident you will be very impressed by the range and quality of the items, all of which have been donated in their entirety by generous supporters to whom we are most grateful.
This auction is open for you to bid online until midnight on 31st January when online bidding will close. Bidding will re-open at the Dinner on 1 February and will only be available at the venue.
If you are unable to attend the Dinner but wish to bid on one or more items, you can still give yourself the best chance of winning by placing a proxy (maximum) bid on this page. We will then carry your bid over to the main auction on the evening of the Dinner and continue bidding up for you up to your maximum. You will be contacted after the dinner if your bid is successful.
We hope that you will enjoy browsing the site and will find one or more items for which you will decide to bid. Good luck!
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.
