Festive Friday Donors

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.

We have been so amazed at the support we have received from the lovely team at Turners this year. Not only have they injected a significant cash sum into the running of one of our key money-making stalls, they have also been a tireless supporter of our PTFA as the Festive Friday event has been taking shape.

A HUGE Magna 'thank you' to Scott, Claire, Steve, Wendy and Jenny for your kindness and encouragement.
