Giving it all for St. Leonard's Hospice (by The Grand Old Uke of York)

Read more ...


Hi everyone, 

We're very excited to be taking part in (once again) the St. Leonards Hospice Accumulator Challenge 2019.   

We have 30 days to make as much money as we can with a start-up loan of £30!!  

St. Leonard's Hospice is an independent charity, providing specialist palliative care and support for local people with life limiting illnesses.  Their support is a vital and critical service to the people of York and the surrounding area.   Many, many  families are touched by the care and love this place has to offer but it's also a warm and supportive place for  families to  spend time together.

All of this is FREE to the patients and their families but it is not free to provide.  Every hour the hospice needs £595 to run!  That's just over £5.2 million a year.  

It does get some public funding but the majority needs to be raised by US and YOU.

So this is where you can come in!!

We've kindly been donated some absolutely fabulous prizes.  They are all up for grabs (until the 2nd March 2019).

All you simply have to do is click on what you'd like to bid on and bid.  Remember it's all for charity, so feel free to go a little crazy and get a warm glow inside! 

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of the amazing companies and individuals who have made this possible and GET BIDDING folks.  

(p.s. do keep popping back as more amazing prizes will appear within the challenge period below).

The bidding starts at 7pm on Tuesday 5th February and will finish at 11:59pm on Saturday 2nd March 2019.

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.
