Orange Day Events

Orange Day Events

There are many schools and businesses taking part and going orange for Magpas this year. Either they are wearing something orange and donating £1, or organising some fantastic fundraising challenges such as a netball tournament, bake sale and even a car push as well as getting the local community involved.

However, there are also lots of events and activities in aid of Orange Day, or with a Magpas Air Ambulance presence, which are open to the public as well. Anyone and everyone can take part – sing along at a charity gig, bid on baggage or pop along to a vintage sale. You don’t have to organise or fundraise yourself to show support for your local lifesavers this Orange Day!

Here's a list of Orange Day events you could attend over the weekend.

18th May:
Charity day: stalls and gardens at Dulligham House, Newmarket, CB8 9UP

Bag a bargain! The ever-popular unclaimed luggage sale returns

Bag a bargain! The ever-popular unclaimed luggage sale returns

Cambs Lock Antiques and Collectables are hosting a left luggage sale in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance. Stansted Airport has donated hundreds of bags, suitcases and holdalls which have been left there by holiday makers and anyone can come along on the day and bid for a bag.

There will be auctions for medium and large cases; and what’s inside is a surprise. The contents could (quite literally) be pants, but it could be very valuable! It only takes a designer bag, clothes, or a good pair of hair straighteners for you to make a profit from your bid. You can sell your goodies on, keep them for yourself, or donate any unwanted items to the Magpas Air Ambulance charity stall.

The event will run from 10am - 4pm on Saturday 20th May. Auctions for the larger items will be held at 12pm and 2pm and small bags will be available to purchase throughout the day, for £5 a pop. The auctions will be held in the Cambs Lock Antiques and Collectables car park and immediately across the road, at the Magpas Air Ambulance Headquarters, crafts and antiques will be on sale. The Magpas charity stall will also be open throughout the day, there will be a tombola for the kids and refreshments will be available to purchase.

All money raised on the day will be donated to Magpas Air Ambulance, so the charity can continue to fund their vital, lifesaving service. It is only through fundraising events such as this and generous public donations that Magpas can continue to bring lifesaving care by land and air, to patients in medical emergencies across the east of England and beyond.

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.

For further information please contact the Fundraising Team on 01480 371060 (option 2) or [email protected]
