Have you ever lost anything at the airport? Perhaps you were rushing to board your flight and left your sunglasses at a café… or forgot to collect your tablet after the baggage scan…
You’ll never imagine the things that pile up at the airport’s Lost and Found… and never get claimed! Every year, the Sydney Airport hosts a Lost Property Auction, with thousands of items being auctioned off to raise funds for charities across the city. This year the Auction will be running online from Tuesday 4th September until Wednesday 12 September 2018. It is managed by Pickles, with PACK & SEND Liverpool as its preferred freight and logistics provider.
With more than 42 million passengers travelling through Australia’s busiest airport each year, thousands of items end up uncollected in the Lost and Found. The items available range from the usual to the unusual including clothing, wine & spirits, cameras, perfumes, jewellery, artwork and toys.
Local charity Cana Communities has been named the recipient of a $100,000 major grant using proceeds of the annual ‘Bid for Good’ Sydney Airport Lost Property Auction. Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer Geoff Culbert said announcing Cana Communities as the major grant recipient is an exciting way to kick off one of the airport’s most unique campaigns.
CEO of Cana Communities Julie Sneddon said the grant would be a game changer for the charity which is run by volunteers who are committed to assisting those in most need. “Like most charities, we rely on the generosity of the community and our volunteers to provide support to those who are highly vulnerable and living on the margins. This amazing gift from Sydney Airport will allow us to continue delivering holistic care to people who have been severely disadvantaged.”
