Magnifica Donates Brand New Laptop to Fairplay
The business which recently relocated back from Sheffield to Chesterfield wanted to establish links with local charitable organisations.
After using a laptop for a short project they had no further use for the device so instead of putting in a drawer to gather dust they decided to donate it to a charity who could benefit from some new tech.
Owner of Magnifica, Rob Gregory, put a message on LinkedIn asking for suggestions in the Chesterfield area and Fairplay got in touch.
Heather Fawbert, CEO of Fairplay said: “Fairplay will use the laptop to assist us with training for both staff and volunteers. We will use it to download our various training packages and presentations. It will also be used for our presentations to both schools and business and will store the Fairplay film – all of these are used to educate and inform people about living with and supporting children with disabilities.”
On Friday May 10th Rob visited Fairplay to hand over the laptop and was pleased to be taken on a tour of the facilities. Seeing first hand the amazing work done by the charity and hearing how the laptop would be used was in Rob’s words ‘an enjoyable and uplifting experience’.
Rob Gregory said “Knowing the amazing work the team at Fairplay do I was really happy when Heather responded to my LinkedIn post. The work Heather and her team do to support and enrich the lives of young people with additional needs and disabilities makes such a difference and I only hope this new laptop can support that work in some small way.”
Dom Stevens from Destination Chesterfield added “Local charities are the lifeblood of our community and the services they offer are hugely important to the many Chesterfield residents. Links between business and charity is key to the continued success of these organisations and it’s great to see two Chesterfield Champions working together in this way.”
