The Great NHS Art AuctionRead more ...
When lockdown began, a year ago, villagers in Llanmaes, in South Wales, began raising funds for the NHS and others affected by Covid 19.
They did this by making scrubs for medics, masks for sale, knitted hats for patients amongst many other things. In one year, they have raised over £12,000 by selling the masks.
This has been ploughed into patient and staff comforts, and many charities, both local and national.
The Great NHS Art Auction is the latest, and, hopefully, final, Covid fund raising effort from Llanmaes.
Some fabulous artists have donated their works to the auction. This is your chance to bid for, and win, a work of art, commission free. You could get a bargain, you will definitely be saying a big thank you to our doctors, nurses and health professionals who have cared for us, and got us through a pandemic.
Enjoy browsing, bidding and, hopefully, winning a beautiful work of art, many created by local artists in Wales.
Please note we are unable to post overseas. Individual P&P costs noted in each item (some are unable to be posted so please do check!)
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.
