Festive Friday 2: Our Donors

Festive Friday 2 700x300

We are always bowled over by the kind donations that are made for Festive Friday from parents, carers, students, staff and friends of Magna Academy. Their generosity is wonderful and we thank each and everyone who has donated items to us for the Grand Raffle and other stalls within the event.

We are also indebted to our fantastic corporate donors who only need the gentlest of nudges before they are offering us excellent prizes for our Grand Raffle. We cannot say 'thank you' enough, so we though we would make a special effort this year to 'name and fame' them here on the Magna website and on social media. Your help and support is genuinely invaluable and your kindness is very much appreciated.
