The Yard's Big Fun Raiser

Read more ...


The Yard is hosting its fourth Big Fun Raiser on Saturday 18th May 2019, this time at the magnificent Prestonfield House. If you can't join us on the night, you can still bid on our wonderful array of silent auction prizes to show your support. The Yard works with over 1,100 disabled children, young people and their families every year. We create exciting opportunities for risky indoor and outdoor adventure play, accessible for everyone. You can help us support more children and families now. Thank you.


This auction is open for you to bid online until 10 a.m. on 18th May 2019 when online bidding will close.  Bidding will re-open at the Event on 18th May, and will only be available at the venue.

 

If you are unable to attend the Event, but wish to bid on an item, you can still give yourself the best chance of winning by placing a proxy (maximum) bid on this page. We then will carry your bid over to the main auction on the evening of the Event and continue bidding up for you up to your maximum. You will be contacted after the Event if your bid has been successful.

Close.

Distil your own gin experience for two
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.
