BIDDING WILL OPEN ON 1ST MAY
Our biennial Charity Ball will be held at Mercedes-Benz World on the site of the historic Brooklands circuit, and all funds raised will support the Reed’s Foundation.
For more information on the Reed's foundation please click on the Fund tab.
This auction is open for you to bid online until 7 p.m. on Friday 10th May 2019 when online bidding will close. Bidding will re-open at the Ball on Saturday 11th May, and will only be available at the venue.
If you are unable to attend the Ball, but wish to bid on an item, you can still give yourself the best chance of winning by placing a proxy (maximum) bid on this page. We then will carry your bid over to the main auction on the evening of the Ball and continue bidding up for you up to your maximum. You will be contacted after the Ball if your bid has been successful.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.
