Our April 1% will go towards feeding over 1,000 children this year with Mary’s Meals.
The money our members donated April, plus £6,686 raised from our Liverpool gig with Simon & Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene will be the first in 2 instalments used to help the pupils at 3 schools plus hundreds of other children gain an all-important education, without the distraction of hunger. This month we’ve raised enough for meals for 949 children so we are already far ahead of our target.
This simple daily meal is positive for the children on many levels. It helps to improve attendance, reduces hunger and improves nutrition. Its also proven to improve learning and test results, bringing life long benefits to the children
Our funding means the children don’t have to choose between food and learning.
