End of Life Doula UK working to change the face of death and dying in our communitiesRead more ...
We are a not for profit, membership association and a community of practice of End of Life Doulas. An End of Life Doula is there to support a person, and those that they love, with a terminal diagnosis. We work in the person’s home as well as Hospices, Hospitals and Care Homes. We are there for the frail, elderly and those living with dementia too. Our non-medical role is to preserve the quality of wellbeing, sense of identity and self-worth from the moment we are called upon. We are present at any stage from the beginning when a person has received the news they have a life limiting illness through to the final months and weeks, and beyond to funeral planning. Some of us are paid and some of us are alongside people on a Volunteer basis where the individual may not have the funds to pay for support. You can see more about our work on our website
Donations that we receive go directly towards out of pocket expenses such as travel for Doulas who are supporting people on a voluntary basis and to fund our 24 help line for anyone in need. We have been busy on the help line during the COVID 19 Pandemic on a whole range of issues – for example Family supporting an Elderly Parent at home; individuals with a terminal diagnosis who are unable to readily access support from the NHS and their GP.
We have described items as accurately as possible.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.
