Rookwood House Plant Fair 2016

Welcome to the Rookwood House auction.  We are running this auction to benefit the Brighter Futures Radiotherapy Appeal.

Imagine being given the news that will change not only your life but the lives of the people you love.  Imagine being given news which means you'll need to spend countless hours travelling to and from hospital to receive treatment in the hope that it will save your life.  Imagine having to make a choice between spending that time travelling for treatment, rather than spending this vital time with the people you love.

Our cancer patients make the journey to Oxford, Bath or Cheltenham to begin radiotherapy treatment, and spend on average 40 days travelling to and from.  We want to change this, to give people lifesaving radiotherapy treatment closer to home.

We have a selection of wonderful prizes for you to bid on in this auction.  The auction will run online until midnight on Thursday 21st April.  Following this it will close online and re-open on the evening of Saturday 23d April for bidding to continue live at a Fine Dining event in the evening.  If you are not attending the event, you can still win an item by bidding here online, and placing a proxy bid, which is the maximum you are prepared to pay.  Bidding will take place on your behalf in the allotted increments until it reaches your maximum.  So do please bid generously!

We will inform you after the 23rd April if you have been successful.

Many thanks for your support.
Close.

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.
