Support The Walk! Mary's Meals Challenge Walks - Update
Sunday 10 March 2019
We have over 70 pupils and staff signed up for our Mary’s Meals sponsored walk challenge on Sunday 10 March 2019 and 25 pupils and staff signed up for the Coventry Way Challenge (40 miles) on Sunday 7 April. Parents of those Sixth Form students taking part have been invited to a special talk by Peter Higgins, co-founder of Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts. He is passionate about Mary’s Meals and particularly likes that donors can have a real connection with the communities through the school sponsorships and regular updates on the Friday afternoon before the walk (8 March 2019).
Our third training walk took place last Sunday – a substantial seventeen miles from Brinklow to Meriden.
These walks are a major challenge for all taking part but they could not be for a more worthy cause. Mary’s Meals was founded back in 2002 with a small project to feed 200 children in a school in Malawi. Mary's Meals is proud to have now served it's billionth meal in India and, for the first time, has begun feeding children in Ethiopia - the fifteenth county to receive Mary's Meals.
Why not support our intrepid walkers by sponsoring one or more children? You can make a donation via the on-line page, simply click here to make your pledge.
We’ve already raised over £2,400 this academic year. Princethorpe College aim to raise enough money to feed six hundred and thirty-six children for a whole school year at Makalanga Primary School in Malawi - £8,841 in total.
This simple initiative has helped children all over the world receive a daily meal in school and since 2007 Princethorpe College has been a part of that, raising in excess of £60,000.
The average cost of a daily meal is £13.90. Mary’s Meals is still expanding its work, seeking to provide every hungry child with a daily meal in their place of education. The charity now provides a daily meal to 1,230,171 children.
Thank you for your support.
