Welcome to our ‘Nikki’s Helping Hands’ Christmas Auction.

"Thank you for taking the time to visit this auction, set up by a group of friends, to raise funds for Nikki Douthwaite, a mother with cancer. I have known Nikki through her fabulous artwork she has created for Formula One, over the last 10 years, and I am proud to have been able to personally contribute to two of the lots.  The funds raised from the auction will help support a lovely family during a particularly difficult time.  Please help support by bidding" (Mr Jake Humphrey - presenter of BBC Sport Football and ex presenter of BBC F1) 

Now, please take a moment to look at the magnificent - and frankly eclectic - range of items we have on offer!

Formula One fans can treat themselves with VIP tickets to the UK Grand Prix 2019, gun enthusiasts can enjoy a champagne lunch for ten at the prestigious Longthorne Gun factory, or 'extra-plus' entry to the Northern Shooting show.  We have original art works, tickets for shows including Britain's got Talen semi-finals and the breath-taking rendition of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake.  There is also signed F1 and football memorabilia and exquisite Christmas gift items. 

We are extremely grateful for the incredible generosity of people who have very kindly donated items for our auction.  Thank you.

ABOUT NIKKI'S HELPING HANDS

This auction has been set up to raise money for Nikki and her family. Nikki, mother of twin toddler boys Jake and Joe, is currently undergoing aggressive, life-threatening treatment for locally advanced lung cancer. ‘Nikki’s Helping Hands’ are a group of fellow-mothers, trying to offer Nikki and her family as much support as we can, both during and after her treatment programme. In particular, we’re seeking to raise funds to help with day-to-day expenses, including rent (Nikki and her partner used their savings and sold their house to pay for IVF to have the family they longed for), essential bills and travel costs.  More information about Nikki and Nikki’s Helping Hands can be found below.

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.
