Sirens FC x Out of Office Charity AuctionRead more ...
Over the past few weeks we have connected with football teams and creatives all around the capital (and country!), to create bespoke art pieces and memorabilia in the spirit of BLM, bringing people together as teams and as communities.
We have chosen The Black Curriculum and Kick It Out as our chosen charity partners, which both do the most incredible and important work - both in education and sports for BAME communities in the UK. 100% of profits made from the auction will be split 50/50 across the two charities.
The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum. Their work focuses on young people ages 8-16, delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning to work towards changing the national curriculum and building a sense of identity in every young person in the UK.
Kick it Out is English football’s equality and inclusion organisation established in 1993. The organisation has played an essential role in challenging discrimination throughout football, educational and community sectors. Their work encourages inclusive practices and campaigns for positive change.
Join us on Thursday 3 September at 6:30pm BST for a live IG event with This Fan Girl, where we will chat all things about this project and inviting on some of the artists.
Finally - additional surprise lots will be revealed at the end of the first week, so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting football and art collaborations.
A huge thank you to all the contributors 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.
