Bid with the BID
In aid of The Poppy Factory Richmond
Welcome to the Bid with the BID online auction which is being run by Be Richmond (the brand name of Richmond Improvement District) in aid of The Poppy Factory Richmond (registered charity number: 225348).
The Poppy Factory is the country’s leading employment charity for veterans with health conditions or impairments. They work with businesses across the country to provide bespoke opportunities and ongoing employment support for hundreds of disabled veterans of all ages and from all Services, helping to restore their financial independence through sustainable and rewarding work.
The factory in Richmond which employs around 30 disabled veterans, has produced poppies and wreaths for the Royal Family and The Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal since 1922.

The auction opens at 10am on Monday 30th October 2017 and will run until 11.59pm on Sunday 12th November 2017. Lots will continually be added, so please keep checking back.
To bid on an auction lot, please click on the lot shown on this page and insert the amount of your bid. You will be required to register at the point of placing your first bid.
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.
