Coombe Girls' School PFA Auction 2019Read more ...
Welcome to this year's online auction. All proceeds from the auction will go towards supporting our daughters’ education. This year our big fundraising aim is to support the PE department with the regeneration of the changing rooms and to enable them to purchase up to date PE equipment for use in lessons and as part of enrichment activities.
A big thank you must be said to our kind community for all the fantastic donations here. We hope there is something for everyone to bid on. The auction is open to anyone, within the school community and beyond*, so please spread the word and grab a bargain! This year we have also added a few items that can be donated directly to the school, such as a chair. Every student needs a chair to sit on!
This auction is followed by our pop-up Christmas fundraiser which will take place at break and lunchtime on Friday 6th December. Please encourage your daughter to bring in some money on this day so she can enjoy the treats: there will be Vintage Sweets & Chocolate Tombola, Popcorn and more.
If you cannot see anything you fancy on the auction take a look at our crowdfunding Rocket Fund for a table tennis table and sports equipment. For more info click on the Rocket Fund banner at the top of this page.
Bidding for the auction will be open until 2.00pm on Saturday 7th December 2019.
So ladies & gentlemen ... start your bidding!
p.s. It's not too late to donate an item to this auction, please email cgs.pfa@gmail with the details. Items will continue to be added so please keep checking in.
*(Anyone can bid, but items bigger than can fit in an A4 envelope must be collected from a Kingston Upon Thames address at the end of the auction.)
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.
