The Decorated Duck

Read more ...


“The Decorated Duck” project features around 50 beautifully and uniquely decorated ducks, all sitting on bespoke copper and wooden stands.  

Artists & designers, and staff & patients from The National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, have decorated the ducks to raise money for the Arts Rehabilitation Programme which offers activities and events for long-term spinal patients.  Creative art therapies can have a healing and positive effect, promote relaxation and provide a means of self-expression which can reduce anxiety. Regular arts and crafts workshops include pottery, print making, mosaics, textiles and marbling; and we like to engage local communities in our arts projects. 

After a successful exhibition at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury - the auction is in full swing - please keep bidding to buy your favourite ducks. 

The Silent Auction is live from Friday 15th September to 4th October and everyone is welcome to take part and raise money for Arts Rehabilitation for people with spinal injuries. These very special ducks will make an eye-catching talking point in any home or public area.

Ducks measure approx 36 cm from bill to tail, and weigh 1.6kilos; they are not weatherproof, so should not be displayed outside.   Collection from the NSIC, Stoke Mandeville after the auction has completed is preferred, or they could be posted at extra cost.

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.
