At the conclusion of the auction the bidder who has made the highest bid in UK pounds will be deemed the winner.
Bidding will close at midnight BST (GMT +1) on Sunday 3rd April.
Winning bidders will be notified by email and instructed to make their donations via the Genre for Japan Justgiving page which can be found here: http://www.justgiving.com/GenreforJapan
The donation to the appeal must be the pledged amount or higher.
We will be able to see as soon as the donation has been made via the Justgiving page. We will then arrange for auction items to be distributed.
Auction winners will have three days to make their donations to the Justgiving page. After this point they have forfeited their win and the second highest bidder will be informed.
We ask that you only bid if you are in a position to purchase the item. Genuine bids only please.
