HOMELINK @ The Garden House Online AuctionRead more ...
Welcome to HOMELINK’s @ The Garden House Online Auction.
We’ve teamed up with the talented community of horticulturalists at The Garden House to offer a range of beautiful botanicals, culinary delights, handcrafted items, and one-off treats & experiences to raise much-needed funds for our summer appeal.
HOMELINK is a volunteer-led charity that enables those who are in crisis to access homes in the private rental sector by providing interest-free loans to cover the cost of a landlord’s deposit & advanced rent.
What’s amazing about our local Sussex service is that 85% of loans we provide are repaid and recycled to help the next person or family in need.
HOMELINK offers a ‘hand up’ not ‘a hand out’ to those in need.
100% of the money raised by this auction will support HOMELINK's summer fundraising campaign, set up in response to the cost of living crisis to help the most vulnerable in our community.
The online auction will end on Friday 17th June at 7pm.
If you would like to attend the auction’s finale in person, join us from 3.30pm – 7.30pm for HOMELINK @ The Garden House, a special Open Garden fundraising event.
Come and be inspired by this special city garden and enjoy live music, afternoon tea, and prosecco & nibbles.
Entry £3. Tickets available @ the gate: BN1 4NT
We hope you can join us. If not, happy bidding and good luck!
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.
