John Peel Centre Fundraising AuctionRead more ...
The John Peel Centre was founded in 2010 to create a high-quality, community-owned arts centre in the heart of Suffolk. We are a Community Interest Company, which means that all the income we earn goes straight back into keeping the doors open. The centre is run by 5 part-time staff and about 60 volunteers who are all passionate about music and the arts. Find out more about us on our website: https://www.johnpeelcentre.com
To tie in with what would have been John Peel’s 82nd birthday on 30th August, we are holding an auction to fundraise for the continuation and development of the JPC and the work we do. We've reached out to people with a connection to East Anglia, to John, or to the centre itself to request donations in the categories of sports, books, music and art.
Many of the books listed are from John Peel's personal library.
All fund raised will go a long way to help us continue with our mission of creating an inspirational environment to foster the creative energy of local people and to enable wider enjoyment of the arts.
The auction opens on Monday 16th August at 9am, and closes on Monday 30th August at 10pm.
PLEASE NOTE: successful bidders will need to pay postage costs unless they are able to collect the item from our venue in Stowmarket.Close.
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.
