The story begins in 2002, in a lopsided shed in the Scottish Highlands, where Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow started a small charity which grew into a massive organisation helping millions of children fulfil the simple ambition of “having enough food to eat & be able to go to school”.
Mary’s Meals now feeds a nutritious meal to more than 1.25 million children every school day in 13 of the poorest parts of the world, including India, Thailand, Burma, Lebanon, Haiti, Ecuador and 7 African countries. Wherever possible the meal is made using local ingredients produced by small-holder farmers, thereby supporting the local community. Being educated and fed enables children to lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty.
Between now and the 31st December every donation to Mary’s Meal’s “Double the Love” appeal will be matched by a supporter-led match-funding campaign (up to £1.9 million), so for every £13.90 donated two children will be fed and educated for a whole school year, the very best present you could give. Go to www.marysmeals.org.uk to make some hungry children in the world very happy.
Many children receiving Mary’s Meals do not have basic learning tools such as pencils & notepads. The Backpack Project helps the children get the most out of their learning by donating a backpack full of the things they need. For many children, a Mary’s Meals backpack will be the first gift they have ever received.
Janice & Hilary began their “Bags of Love” project this summer under the Rotary Ramsbottom umbrella, and have been asking schools and organisations to provide backpack items, new or good condition pre-owned. We have 65 completed backpacks ready for collection by Mary’s Meals and many more which are almost complete. It’s a great way to recycle school bags, uniforms, sandals, PE kits, towels and spoons. Other items required include A4 lined and unlined notepads, pens, pencils, coloured pencils, sharpeners, erasers, pencil cases, rulers, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste. They would really appreciate it if you or any school, organisation or club you know could contribute. Financial donations are also very gratefully received to purchase those “hard-to-come-by” items such as sandals and boys’ shorts. A brief presentation for younger children or a more detailed one for those interested in the fuller benefits of the project can be given. Current participants include Holcolme Brook Primary School, 38th Rossendale (Open) Scouts, Speakeasy, Holy Cross College, Ramsbottom Rotary, family and friends.
Janice & Hilary are delighted at the enormous response and good-will they have encountered and know that the smiles on the faces of the children participating will be multiplied many times on those receiving these “Bags of Love”. If anyone wants to help with this worthwhile project, has items to donate, or is part of a group which may want to get involved, please contact Ramsbottomrotary@gmail.com
