South London Art Sale

“What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever said” asked the boy. “Help” said the horse.


South London Cares has made the decision to postpone the South London Art Sale until Thursday 10th September 2020. As a charity that works with older people, we have suspended all face-to-face activity for six weeks because the health of our neighbours and our wider community is our number one priority.


The decision to postpone the South London Art Sale means that South London Cares is losing funds at a time when we need support, both to help us stay in touch with more older people in this time of challenge and to sustain our charity longer term.


So we've decided to give you the chance to bid on the star piece in our art sale: an original drawing taken from The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse by renowned illustrator Charlie Mackesy. 


Happy bidding, and from everyone at South London Cares. Thank you so much for your support.

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.
