Magpas Christmas Fair!

Magpas Christmas Fair!

The Magpas Christmas fair is happening on Sunday 6th December at our head office in Huntingdon.

We will have stalls, snacks, treats and gifts to buy; so there are plenty of opportunities to stock up on Christmas gifts for your loved ones, and the odd treat for yourself as well!

We will also have extra special items for sale, and perfect for a fun Christmas gift: a ‘box of books’ and ‘box of bric-a-brac’ mystery boxes stuffed full of goodies. The boxes are £3 (books) and £5 (bric-a-brac) and are a complete lucky dip!

Please come along and support us at this fun filled, festive event, to help make a lifesaving difference, all in aid of Magpas.

The fair is open between 11am and 4pm at Centenary House, St Mary’s Street, Huntingdon, PE29 3PE.

Who wouldn't like to be a fundraising Santa?

Who wouldn't like to be a fundraising Santa?

The organisers Skyline Charity Team say: 'Thousands of Santa’s will be donning red hats and white beards in the beautiful setting of Victoria Park for a 5km or 10km run on the 6th December taking on this fantastically festive fundraising event to raise thousands of pounds for your cause, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to get involved!

Places on the run are now extremely limited so make sure you reserve yours today to avoid disappointment! 

We have recently announced our exciting partnership with ITV’s Text Santa so this year's run is going to be even bigger and better than before with great exposure for all of the charities involved.

All runners will receive a FREE Santa Suit so they can transform into Father Christmas at the drop of a (bobbled) hat! This is a truly brilliant, fun and atmospheric day so make sure you reserve your places now to ensure your supporters get the chance to take part in this amazing challenge and allow yourselves plenty of promotion time!

  • 10 places at £25 per place
  • 25 places at £22 per place
  • 50 places at £20 per place
  • 75 places at £18.50 per place
  • 100 places at £17.50 per place'


If this sounds like something you would love to be involved with, or if you have any further questions, then please give Skyline a call on 020 7424 5535. or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you do the 10km then you can have an extra mince pie! It's a win win situation.

Magpas is going all the way to Chicago!

Magpas is going all the way to Chicago!

We have amazing volunteers who set themselves fundraising challenges to raise money for Magpas and we think this is possibly one of the furthest away marathons run for us! Alex has been offered a place in the Chicago Marathon in October.

Alex wanted to combine his determination to beat his London Marathon time and his desire to visit America in one go and came up with the brilliant plan. He heard all about Magpas through his work colleagues and looked in to our work on this website. He was very inspired by what he saw and chose Magpas to be the charity to run for. We are very lucky to have your support Alex and thank you very much. To support Alex please visit his Virgin Money page www.virginmoneygiving.com/AlexAshley. Good  luck from us all Alex!

Russell & Sam are going insane!

Russell Neve and Sam Knightley also known as Team Crazy are running the 5k go insane in Peterborough in memory of a very special friend they both lost on the 28th December very suddenly. 

Russell says: 'We are members of a motorcycle club called the HBF and Fran was a very much loved and cared for member of the club. We do fundraising events, but very close to Fran's heart was Magpas so Sam lovingly entered herself into the challenge and I followed suit shortly after for the simple fact of, we are both daft, but felt we had to do something to raise funds for a great charity and dedicate it to Fran's memory'.

We would like to wish them both the very best for the training and the event itself and say thank you for this amazing challenge.

If you would like to support the guys, then please visit their Just Giving Page: https://www.justgiving.com/Team-crazy/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=Team-crazy&utm_campaign=pfp-share-mobile
