Mary’s Meals provides one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. Their work is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty.

Throughout the rest of the year we will be running other fundraising events to raise money for our chosen charity, such as selling items the children have made at the Christmas fair.
