Celebrating Key Workers and Covid-19 Heroes 1

Read more ...


The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters members have been busy making different key workers & heroes who are supporting the nation during the Covid-19 pandemic. We wanted to find a way to celebrate the work they do and to thank them in some small way. Every day we have been posting a photo of a different key worker/hero on social media, together with a little story about them. 

In addition to creating a little spark of joy during this difficult time, we are pleased to be raising funds for two Hertfordshire charities: Citizens Advice Bureau – East Herts and Carers in Hertfordshire: Both these charities are trying to continue their valuable community work by asking their volunteers to work from home. They require urgent funds to give their volunteers the necessary technology and support, to enable them to continue their work.

We are now auctioning 15 of the figures that have been posted and there will be more to come.

Please be aware that these figures are decorations, not toys.

This auction will end on Wednesday, 10th June, 6pm. Winners will be posted their winning figure by Royal Mail 2nd class post at the bidder's cost, £3.00

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.
