Welcome to the John King Brain Tumour Foundation online auction! Please look through the magnificent items we have on offer and place your bids before the event takes place. There is an option to enter a proxy bid which is the maximum you're willing to pay and this will cross over to the event. 

Please note your bid for the live auction items will be taken through as the beginning bid at the event. 

This auction is open for you to bid online until 9am on the 18th October when online bidding will close.  Bidding will re-open at the Event on 18th October in the evening, and will only be available at the venue.


If you are unable to attend the Event, 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 Event and continue bidding up for you up to your maximum. You will be contacted after the Event if your bid has been successful.

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.
