During Lent we are supporting the charity 'Mary's Meals'.
Mary's Meals sets up school feeding programmes in some of the world's poorest communities, where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Their vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education. It costs just £15.90 to feed a child for a whole school year.
On Friday 28th February we attended school 'Wearing Blue' for a £1 donation. We spent the morning in house groups where we watched a film 'Saving Grace'. We then created our own prayers and thought about how we could give something up for Lent and donate the money to Mary's Meals. The staff were overwhelmed at some of the thoughtful and caring prayers that were wrote. Amount raised £188.76. Further donations can be made during the remainder of Lent.
Thank you to all the families that were able to produce a backpack for Mary's Meals charity especially at a time when we have been thinking about issues so much closer to home. 22 backpacks were donated and I've been able to make a backpack full of 'Spare Resources'. Well Done! I have been in contact with the charity and obviously, the collection has been put on hold for now so hopefully, the children will be back at school to see the backpacks being collected and sent on to the children in Malawi.
