Oasis Cardiff Silent Auction FundraiserRead more ...
Oasis Cardiff supports asylum seekers and refugees to integrate into the local community, helping Wales become a more welcoming, inclusive, and diverse nation. As the largest independent asylum and refugee support centre in the UK, we pride ourselves on the work we do in supporting individuals and families, however as our current support services are on hold, we need your help!
At present we are delivering meals to 2,500 individuals per week and this is likely to continue increasing during this time. The money raised would cover the costs of food preparation and deliveries, and will allow us to continue to offer toiletries and sanitary products to vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees. This includes those who are homeless, in initial accommodation, or self-isolating during this period; due to symptomatic or current health conditions. The money raised will also enable staff to continue supporting the mental health and wellbeing of individuals, and will allow us to maintain strong and supportive relationships within the community.
We are holding this online charity auction whereby you can bid for some amazing items that have been donated to us by local and international businesses as well as Wales-based artists and creatives.
We have put some focus on prizes that will be particularly beneficial during this time. Prizes will include practical solutions for the lockdown period, focusing on maintaining health and wellbeing and remaining positive. We also have a few items that can purely act as a guilt-free treat for yourself or someone you think may deserve it during this time.
This auction will run from 10am on Monday 4th May until midnight on Sunday 10th May 2020.
To learn more about the support we are offering please visit our Twitter (@OasisCDF), Instagram (@oasiscdf), or Facebook (@OasisCDF).
Thank you, and happy bidding

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.
