Please keep visiting this site - new auction lots coming soon.

The Charity Cupcake Challenge is a year long campaign to raise awareness of epilepsy and support the fundraising of the Muir Maxwell Trust.

We aim to raise £250,000.

Founded by parents Ann & Jonny Maxwell in 2003, the Muir Maxwell Trust is one of the UK's leading paediatric epilepsy charities dedicated to research and providing free epilepsy alarms to families throughout the UK.

An epilepsy alarm costs £500.

There are 120,000 children in the UK under the age of 21 with epilepsy, of these half have uncontrolled epilepsy and 20,000 are severe.

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.
