Supporting Mary’s Meals

During May (‘Mary’s month’) we supported the charity Mary’s Meals at Church.

We invited people in our local area to help as well. We’ve had a great response with money given or events planned – a wedding collection, local halls of residence raising money, schools having assemblies and ‘dressing down’ days, all showing what a diverse and generous community St Chrysostom’s is at the heart of!

Any amount, small or great, makes a difference.

£10 given to Mary’s Meals gives a child in a developing country school dinners for a year.

 20p gives a week’s worth of school dinners.

On top of feeding the children for many of them the guarantee of a daily meal brings the children to school every day.

Amazing facts – especially when we consider school dinners in Manchester cost £10 for a week.

THANK YOU to everyone who is responding to our challenge to support Mary’s meals in May!

Together we have raised £1208.27 which is 30,207 school meals!

    The Multi lingual prayer group will have a small fund raising event tomorrow. We will have a high tea after our prayer service and encourage people to contribute.
