Mary's Meals and St Mary's

Summer 2016

We are now the proud owners of a Backpack certificate from Mary’s Meals  that confirms we collected 60 bags for theirBackpack project. Winta and Shanola assisted Year 6 collect and fill the bags. These bags were then sent to  very greatful children in Malawi.

Mary’s Meals is a charity which tries to eradicate poverty through providing a nourishing meal in a place of education. Their target is to spend 93p in the £1 on the actual work- trying to keep overheads to a minimum. This is only acheivable through the generosity of volunteers that help to cook and serve the food and those who fund raise collect resources.

Mary’s Meals started feeding 250 children in Malawi (2002).

They are now feeding 1,187,840 children in 13 countries (Summer 2016). It costs £12.20 to feed a child for 1 year.
