Quick Auction In Aid Of The Bedlington Terrier Health Group




Could you put a piece on the blog about our 'quick' auction in aid of the Bedlington Terrier Health Group?  We are holding a quick auction beginning Friday 24th Jan at 7.00pm and running until Sunday 26th Jan at 9.00pm.  This is to re-auctions items that received winning bids on our previous auction, but for which we never received payment, plus a few new items which have been donated.
Hopefully everyone will support this auction again, as brilliantly as they did last time.  At least one of these items received a very high bid in October and it would be great if we could at least regain some of the money that was never received.

Pity we cannot take part, not on facebook and absolutely no desire to be so.

I'm sure there is somebody who will bid on your behalf, up to a pre- determined limit.

I can understand totally anyone not wanting to join Facebook, it is purely a matter of personal choice. However, we are trying to raise as much money as possible in the auction, and this is the best way to reach as large an audience as possible. Even in this small follow up auction we have had items donated from the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium. We currently have bidders from as far away as the USA, Germany and Russia.
If you aren't on Facebook, we would be happy to bid on your behalf if you want to support the auction.

Absolutely understand wanting to reach as large an audience as possible and thanks for the offer to bid for us but without being on Facebook how do we see what items are available?

I think I may have given the wrong impression. I am wholly in favour of any means of collecting funds for bedlington rescue and/or health concerns, I just do not wish to join such dubious organisations as facebook.

If you aren't on Facebook, the best way to see the auction would be to 'ask a friend'!! If you can look at someone else's FB, then if there is something you would like to bid on, we would be happy to place bids for you, up to a maximum amount chosen by yourself. The FB group you need to look for is Bedlington Terrier Auction For. The auction finishes at 9.00pm. Hope this is of some help.

Jane, you didn't give the wrong impression, we know that you are wholly in support of anything that raises funds for bedlingtons. Lots of people don't want to be on FB, as I said, it's personal choice. I believe there will also be a fundraising stall at the BTA Fun Day in June, so that will be another opportunity to support the Group for non FB users.
