Yolmo Connect Fundraising Auction

Read more ...
We've collected together a superb range of gifts and excellent skills and experiences, offered by friends and supporters of Yolmo Connect to support our fundraising event on 16th September.  Please take a look at the items and services on offer and bid as you are able.

Yolmo Connect supports education in Nepal through the teaching of IT skills and use of computers, in schools based in the Yolmo Valley region.
Support is given through the provision of hardware including laptops, software, teacher-training and administration support for schools.
Based high up in the hills, at the head of the  Yolmo Valley, Melamchi ghyang school and village was completely devastated by the earthquake of 2015 and to-date only the health centre has been rebuilt in stone.  The school presently functions from temporary buildings of reclaimed materials, but is delivering a full timetable and students are achieving good exam results.

As part of our fundraising for 2018 we are hosting an evening of 'Food, Music and Love for Nepal', along with a silent auction.

Please note: items and skills are intended to be delivered within a 20 mile radius of Stoke-on-Trent, but if you require them further away, please email us and we will ask the donator.  Thank you!

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.
