RMPS raising funds for Mary’s Meals

Simple-IdeaCharleston Academy pupils have raised over £800 for Scottish Charity Mary’s Meals. This sum was raised after pupils from S1 to S4 watched a DVD about the work of Mary’s Meals and were motivated to donate change to the charity in class. Mrs McConnachie and Mrs Mackenzie were overwhelmed by the generosity of the pupils who made the donations during class time.

Read some quotes from the class on the RMPS Blog about the impact the film had on them and what motivated them to donate. Find out more about the work of this important Scottish Charity HERE.

The total sum raised came to £875.

This provides 14,690 children one nourishing daily meal or 1,469 children a daily meal for a year.
