What you thought last year...

James Harper, a Magpas Air Ambulance supporter said "We love the luggage auction and always buy a case for each member of the family. Its great fun opening them together and seeing what surprises each case holds. We have struck lucky with some designer clothes and unopened aftershave, but at the end of the day, even if you end up with just some dirty old socks you will still have a piece of luggage you can use for travel or storage. Happy days!"

Magpas volunteer, Melanie and her sister Kerry from Sandy, joined in the fun last year and ended up with 10 cases between them! Kerry explained, "I've got some money I wanted to donate to the charity and I've been meaning to buy a suitcase anyway, so this is just that with some extra fun! The cases are lovely and the stuff inside is just a bonus – if it doesn't fit or I don't want it then I'm just going to donate it back to the Magpas charity shops. It's a win win!"

Amy Walton, someone who regularly joins us for the auctions bought a case which turned out to be full of new clothes (with tags still on!). When asked why she comes back each time Amy replied, "It's such a fun day out - we always have a giggle! You never know what you'r going to get but that's all part of the fun."
