COURTYARD CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2016: The Courtyard & Herefordshire Community Foundation

Read more ...


Christmas Appeal Auction 2016

Raising vital funds for The Courtyard and Herefordshire Community Foundation. The auction will run from Tuesday 29 November to Monday 12 December 2016. 

The Courtyard is so much more than an arts venue - we deliver community projects with hundreds of Herefordshire residents, both young and older - every year. 

From April 2016, The Courtyard lost its regular council funding and has experienced a significant drop in income as a result. As Herefordshire's arts hub, last year's community projects with older people had 7,500 attendances, and our youth projects had over 30,000 attendances throughout the county. To help protect this invaluable community work and the venue itself, The Courtyard depends on additional donations and support.. 

Herefordshire Community Foundation (HCF) was created by local people to support local communities. 

Over the years, HCF has made hundreds of grants to a wide range of local voluntary and community groups, charitable causes, and individuals, to improve the lives of people in Herefordshire. HCF encourages charitable giving, matching people, ideas, resources and aspirations. Recent grants include Home Start, Wye Valley Youth Rangers and Creative Aging projects at The Courtyard. HCF's aim is to help Herefordshire to continue to develop as a community of group and generosity. 

To bid, just click one of the pictures. You will be asked to register if you wish to bid, including an email address, and you will need to sign in each time to place bids.
  
All proceeds from The Courtyard's Christmas Appeal auction will be split equally between The Courtyard (Charity no. 1067869)  and Herefordshire Community Foundation (Charity no. 1094935). 
              
Thanks to our generous donors and thank you for supporting The Courtyard and Herefordshire Community Foundation!

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.
