Mary's Meals Update

DID YOU KNOW......Every donation you make will be doubled until 31 December 2017, thanks to three amazing donors.

FOR EVERY £1 =£2

It was lovely to find all the items donated for the children's backpacks this last week! Many thanks! Maybe you could help with soap, coloured pencils and flip flops in the coming week? We are also desperate for spoons ...used ones are fine as we have none left, if you have any to spare?

Thanks to your amazing generous support these past few weeks, money popped in to the little blue mugs amounted to £140! It has been sent and will feed many children with a meal at £13 a day!

The Vision of Mary's Meals is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.

Magnus, who runs the charity, has just published his first book explaining just how the charity began.  It is called "The Shed That Fed a Million Children"  Over one million children now receive a daily meal of porridge - and it is organised from the shed in his garden!  It is an awesome read! You can buy it here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shed-That-Million-Children-Extraordinary/dp/0007578326

He finishes with "Our work has just begun - we have 47 million more children to feed!"  Many thanks for your kind donations.
