Best Beginnings

Read more ...
Not all children in the UK have an equal start in life. A baby born in Bradford is six times more likely to die before the age of one than a baby born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. A large gap exists between the health, wellbeing and development of children born into well-off and less well-off families.

Best Beginnings is a small national charity working to give every baby in the UK a better, healthier start in life. We provide families with information and support to help them improve their child's health and future life chances. We also work with health professionals to support their work with the most disadvantaged parents and improve the quality of services available to all families in the UK.

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.
