Fundraise with a bike, run or walk around beautiful Ferry Meadows in Peterborough

Fundraise with a bike, run or walk around beautiful Ferry Meadows in Peterborough

Whatever your fitness level, get sponsored to bike, run or walk (BRoW) your way around Ferry Meadows in Peterborough!

Taking place on Saturday 30th July, it will be the second time the annual event, organised by Anna Morgan-Dutton and a team of volunteers, will be taking place to raise money for Magpas Air Ambulance.

Anna said: "I came up with the idea for BRoW after watching the London Marathon and the Great North Run. I noticed people were not only running but also walking and cycling on specially made bikes.

"No one ever knows what's round the corner, or when they may require emergency help from Magpas Air Ambulance, which is why fundraising like BRoW is so important. Last year, we had a lot of fun and , and I'm hoping to make this year's event even bigger and better."

There are three routes to choose from, ranging from 5km to 12km, so choose your challenge! BRoW will be taking place at Nene Park Trust - Ferry Meadows, Orton Waterville, Peterborough PE2 5UU. Gates are open from 9am - 4pm and participants are invited to register between 10am - 12pm.

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]

24th year of vintage steam display to raise money for Magpas Air Ambulance

24th year of vintage steam display to raise money for Magpas Air Ambulance

A couple from Sutton are once again organising the annual vintage steam display in Little Downham, in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance.

The Bygones and Organs Extravaganza features a host of vintage cars, tractors, steam engines and organs which have attracted visitors for the past 23 years.

Trevor and Linda Brown host the event each year with the help of family and friends, and have raised in excess of £15,000 for the charity to date.

Linda said, “Visitors come from all over to see the display, which takes them back to a bygone era. We’ve raised funds for Magpas Air Ambulance each year, as it’s a local cause which helps people when they’re most in need. We’re really proud to have raised so much money for them, and we hope visitors will be back this year to continue that success.”

The Bygones and Organs Extravaganza will be held on Saturday 19th March from 1pm – 5pm at Little Downham Village Hall, Main Street, Little Downham, Ely, CB6 2ST

Entry is £2.50 for adults and £2 for children and senior citizens.
