Lots of little acts of love

The Mary’s Meals global family raises funds in so many incredible ways! Here’s just a few of your fabulous fundraising stories from around the world.

By royal appointment

Volunteers from the Mary’s Meals charity shop in Oban, Scotland were recently invited to a garden party hosted by the Queen in Holyroodhouse Palace, Edinburgh. The lovely ladies celebrated the work of Mary’s Meals on the big day by wearing clothes and accessories donated to the shop. The outfits will be resold, along with little messages explaining that they were worn to the royal occasion. Hope you all had a wonderful time!

Dressing to impress

Pupils at Clear Water Academy in Alberta, Canada have raised almost $4,300 for Mary’s Meals. The students held a successful ‘Blue Day’, wearing jeans to school in exchange for a donation. One kind-hearted pupil also chose to skip birthday presents this year and instead asked people to make donations to Mary’s Meals.

Pedal power

Dynamic duo Sam Holmes and Steven Esposito took on an epic 750 mile cycle from their Michelin office in Dundee to the company headquarters in France – all to raise funds for Mary’s Meals. The pair travelled through Scotland, England, the Netherlands and Belgium before reaching their destination in Clermont-Ferrand on 19 June. 

Fun in the sun

For the fifth year in a row, the super pupils from Antun Kanižlić school in Croatia held a summer fair to raise funds for Mary’s Meals. The fundraising stars, who sponsor Sackie Town Primary School in Liberia, organised a spectacular day of entertainment and awareness raising. Crowds flocked to watch singing and musical performances, take part in dance workshops and sample freshly flipped pancakes and delicious home baking. Funds were raised at stalls selling second hand toys, books and bric-a-brac. There was also a Mary’s Meals selfie station and a hairdressing salon where the latest styles were offered in exchange for donations.
