Mary’s Meals

Our Christmas Appeal this year is Mary’s Meals (Scottish Charity SCO 22140), providing school meals to children in Malawi, Uganda and Liberia. £5.30 will provide a child in Malawi with Mary’s Meals for a year!  There are collection boxes in church and leaflets giving information on how you can donate.

Backpack Project

We are also collecting backpacks to send out later in January. Although primary education is free in Malawi, parents often have to buy uniforms and materials. Here is our list of wanted items:

Backpack/School bag
Pencils and crayons
Ruler and sharpener
Pens and Pencil Case
Exercise book/Notebook
Shorts or Skirt/Dress
T shirt
Flip flops/Sandals
Toothpaste and toothbrush
Small ball or simple toy

Goods do not have to be new as long as they are in good condition. Label your full Backpack for a boy or girl (and suitable age).

You do not need to fill a Backpack – bring along any donations and we will make up complete ones.
