The On Yer Bikes On-Line Auction 2002 followed on from the success of Ride 2001. It was announced by Harry and Carol Tansey on 11th March 2002.
"Whilst trying to organise prizes for Ride 2001, we were luckily enough to receive some valuable lots from leading sporting clubs, celebrities and companies. We wrote to many more clubs and celebrities in order to get more lots, ready for the auction to begin."
The auction officially started on Saturday June 8th 2002, to coincide with the start of the JTSMA Awareness Week and ran until Saturday June 22nd 2002. In order to prevent last minute bidding and to maximise the amount raised, any bid for an item kept the bidding open (for that item only) for an extra day.
Please see the Lots page for a description of the lots that we had on offer.
Auction 2002 raised £1895!
After the auction, we spoke to the Jennifer Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy who were delighted with the outcome! Overall it was a fantastic event, well supported by people local and worldwide! It has raised the profile of SMA and raised valuable funds that will be used to support families affected by SMA and to fund research that we hope will one day find a cure for the condition.
