Welcome to The Ulster Historical Foundation’s "Things Money CAN Buy" online charity auction.
Established in 1956 the aim of the Foundation is to encourage an interest in the history of the province of Ulster; promote a positive image of Northern Ireland overseas; strengthen cross-community links through the understanding of Northern Ireland’s history; broaden access to historical documents and records for Irish genealogy; and to inspire pride in Irish and Scots-Irish heritage.
Within this site you will see a number of prize auction ‘lots’. If you would like to ‘win’ one of these prizes all you have to do is bid! All of these ‘lots’ have been generously gifted for the purpose of this auction with all proceeds going towards supporting the work of Ulster Historical Foundation.
The end date for the auction will be 21st February. At this point the winning bids will need to be paid and prizes supplied (within 7 days via the secure online payment system)
The Foundation is registered with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC100280 and does not receive any funding from government. Any contribution, large or small, really does make a difference and your support of this auction is appreciated greatly.
Good Luck and Happy Bidding...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.
