ROTARY CLUB OF FELIXSTOWE AND CV-19 HELP IN THE COMMUNITY
CV-19 may hopefully be on the wane but our community will be feeling the effects of it for a long time.
The Rotary Club of Felixstowe has always worked hard to help disadvantaged individuals and families in the Felixstowe area and now this help is needed more than ever
All the funds we raise go direct to the front line where it is needed the most, we don’t have any costs to deduct so every penny we make gets to the right place - organisations such as Basic Life Charity Food Bank, Felixstowe Salvation Army, Felixstowe Citizens Advice Bureau, Suffolk Mind and others.
Each year our Rotary Club arranges a rather good Boxing evening for charity, but this year it has obviously had to be cancelled, and we have lost the funds we would normally have made. So to do something special for the local families and individuals suffering from the financial fall-out of CV-19 we have decided to hold an on-line auction of top quality sporting memorabilia All net proceeds of the Auction will be spent locally.
Please help us help those less fortunate by bidding generously! ** All the lots are original signatures and come with a certificate of authenticity. Click on the image for details.
Those who aren't in the bidding may wish to make a donation of any amount direct to our Community Fund at:
**The reserve price is the cost to RC of Felixstowe of purchasing the item. Any bid in excess of the reserve price will be treated as a donation by the successful bidder and Gift Aid may be available on the donation element, allowing the Rotary Club to claim a further 25% from HMRC.
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.
