Irwin Mitchell sign off a year’s fundraising with cheque presentation

Irwin Mitchell sign off a year’s fundraising with cheque presentation

We were delighted to invite Alexander Davenport, Sarah Wealleans and Ruth Booy (pictured alongside our fundraising coordinator Emma, above) to our Air Ambulance base who came on behalf of all at Irwin Mitchell, as they handed over their final cheque from a year's worth of fundraising.

We are overwhelmed by the sheer volume and diversity of their fundraising as they chose us to be their charity of the year in 2015. 

Throughout last year, the Cambridge based solicitors continued to fundraise for Magpas Air Ambulance, and their brilliant fundraising ideas included a continuous bike-a-thon (equalling the distance of some of our life saving missions), undertook the Three Peak Challenge, held raffles, company dress down days and a ‘Great British Bake Off’ inspired bake sale, as well as three hardy souls jumping out of a plane in a sponsored skydive (details: http://www.magpas.org.uk/component/easyblog/?view=entry&id=447)

In total Irwin Mitchell raised £6,813 for Magpas Air Ambulance and were great partners in a fun packed year of fundraising. A huge thank you to the whole Irwin Mitchell team; they have contributed to us being able to continuing to support people in the region who depend on our lifesaving services.”

Bag a bargain at the Magpas Air Ambulance unclaimed luggage sale

Bag a bargain at the Magpas Air Ambulance unclaimed luggage sale

Join us and pick up their own potential treasure trove at the Magpas Air Ambulance unclaimed airport luggage sale on Saturday 26th March.

Buyers will have the chance to bag a bargain, with prices from £7.50 for a small case. However, there’s no peeking inside allowed, although punters can lift the bags to test their weight.

Our previous luggage sale in November raised over £1,200. A crowd of more than 300 people flocked to our charity shop and the bags sold out within an hour. One bag contained a pair of boots worth over £150 and others had some more unusual items including a scanner, a drill, and twenty chocolate bars.

The luggage has been donated by Stansted Airport and comes from travellers who failed to collect their bags when arriving.  

Debbie Florence, Head of Fundraising says: “The sale was a great success last time, and we’re hoping more people will get the chance to find a hidden treasure amongst the bags. We’d definitely advise buyers to arrive early to avoid disappointment as it’s first come, first serve.”

The charity shop and sale will be open from 10am until 3pm at ourheadquarters at Centenary House, St Mary’s Street, Huntingdon.
