From Rags to Riches Appeal for Mary’s Meals – Charity which sets up school feeding programmes where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.
The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School community has offered to come together with our local churches to meet the human needs of the above appeal. Staff, students and parents are invited to donate items of unwanted good clothing (no shoes) for those in desperate circumstances. Men, women and children’s clothing (of all ages) can be left in the main reception. In addition to the donated items, if you would prefer to make a financial donation I am more than happy to visit the local charity shops, on your behalf, to purchase clothing. The deadline for collection is Friday 15 November 2019. All donations are to be placed in main reception.
Mary’s Meals is a worldwide charity that sets up and supports school feeding programmes where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Amazingly, 4 full sacks of good quality clothing will feed a child one good nutritious meal every school day for a whole year.
