Unclaimed Luggage Auction

Sunday 16th February 2020 is your next chance to bag a bargain at our Peterborough unclaimed luggage auction in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance! Hundreds of bags, big and small, will be up for grabs, so come along and find some hidden treasures.

To build on the astonishing success of our final auction of 2019, we’re returning to Peterborough for our first charity auction of 2020, and have secured a BRAND NEW venue, at Parkway Sports & Social Club!

Celebrity auctioneer David Palmer from TV shows Bargain Hunt, Flog It and Cash in the Attic will be auctioning all lots on the day. Bids will start at £10. Cash and card payments accepted.

All funds raised from successful bids will go to help our lifesaving cause and will enable us to continue to provide lifesaving care by land and air to those who most need it.

Bags from all over Europe will be up for auction. At a recent auction, winning bidders went away with brand new Nike trainers, brand new designer goods with the tags still on, an Apple Watch, some Beats headphones, and more!

People from all walks of life travel through Europe’s airports and you never know what they’ll have in their cases. Some of these cases don’t find their way back to their owners. Will you be the lucky bidder on someone’s bag after a shopping trip to Milan or Paris? Will you land some new snowboarding gear after someone’s trip to the Alps? Maybe a new guitar from someone busking in Berlin? Or will it just be someone’s dirty washing? The ‘blind’ bidding is all part of the fun!

Everyone of all ages is welcome. The event is completely free to attend. Doors open at 11:00am and the auction itself will begin at noon. Be sure to get down there early to eye up the bags and secure yourself a prime seat.

Please contact Annette for further information.
