Art Auction: Now Online

October 10th, 2009

Our online Art Auction is now in operation.

We have been over whelmed by the extraordinary generosity of the artists who have already donated their work in support of our fund. We’re already up to nearly 30 artists and over 50 works of art, and there are more to come. We will add the new works as we receive them.

There’s an overall preview page where you can browse examples of the artist’s work (click here) and you can find out how the auction works and more about the individual artists (click here).

We have priced all the works at £50. We hope that the opportunity to contribute towards the fundraising objectives of the Fund, to help save lives threatened by suicide, will encourage offers far in excess of this amount. We are delighted that the HMRC Gift Aid Dept. have agreed that the additional element of all bids over this sum can be treated as donations, and so will attract Gift Aid relief.

Our online auction uses a proxy bidding system which we hope you will find easy to use (click here).

The online auction will close at noon on November 5th. Some of the pieces will go on to be offered in the live auction at the Queen’s Elm later that evening and in this case the highest bids from the online auction will be lodged with the auctioneer as proxy bids. All winners will be notified some time on November 6th.
