Cambs Lock Antiques and Collectables are hosting an unclaimed luggage sale in aid of Magpas Air Ambulance as part of the charity’s annual Orange Day event. Stansted Airport has donated hundreds of bags, suitcases and holdalls which have been left there by holiday makers, and anyone can come along on Saturday 20th May 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. 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.
