Breast Cancer Now Charity Auction by Torness Power Station, Dunbar

Read more ...

I am delighted to be launching a silent auction in support of our nominated charity Breast Cancer Now.  It is a charity close to my heart and many others whose lives have been affected by breast cancer, the most common cancer in the UK. Every year around 11,500 women and 80 men die from breast cancer – that’s nearly 1,000 deaths each month. 

The "lots" you see  have all been very generously donated by our local business community, so a massive thank you to each and everyone   

My hope is that you see something that interests you, maybe even excites,  and that you can dig that little bit deeper into your pockets and  give generously as all proceeds go to a very worthy cause. 

Finally in support of Breast Cancer Now,  I am attempting to run my first ever Marathon in London  on the 23rd of April. so if you do just miss out,  why not make  a small donation to Breast Cancer Now. Just click here,  or on the London Marathon or JustGiving Logo at the top of the page.  Thank you in anticipation of your generous support. 

Thank you

David Laird, EDF Energy Supply Chain, Torness.

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.
