Unclaimed luggage from Stansted Airport is being sold for charity next month.

Magpas Helimedix has been given a collection of different shapes and sizes of travel holders that haven’t been collected by their previous owners.

The Magpas Unclaimed Luggage event is happening Saturday, October 25 between 10am-3pm at the Magpas Fundraising HQ, St Mary’s Street in Huntingdon.

Visitors can pick up a bag to feel its weight but are not allowed to open them.

They then decide which suitcase grabs their attention and buy it.

Stansted Airport baggage lead agents Sarah Webb and Scott Hyam said: “Magpas is a charity that’s there for everyone and anyone who needs them, so we wanted to raise money for them.

“Visiting the Magpas Operations Base just highlighted the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this lifesaving service happen.”

Magpas former patient and volunteer fundraiser Wendy Mason said, “Magpas saved my life, it’s as simple that. I encourage everyone to come along on the 24th October to do their bit and help support them.

“I’m hoping this will be the first of many unclaimed baggage events for Magpas.”

Stansted has a policy of waiting for a set time and if no one returns to pick up their bags, the airport donates them to Unclaimed Baggage events like the one Magpas is hosting.
