Sixth form pupils raise money for Mary’s Meals

PRINCETHORPE College sixth form students Beth Adams and Katie Smith have capitalised on a romantic theme to raise over £125 for the charity Mary’s Meals.

Red and white carnations were bought by the students as an expression of love or friendship to be hand-delivered to classrooms on Valentine’s Day. Princethorpe College in Warwickshire has already raised £2,741 to provide school meals for a whole academic year for the Betsy Williams School in Bomi County, Liberia.

Liberia is the secondpoorest country in the world and it is Princethorpe’s aim to match that total amount for next academic year as well. Mary’s Meals is an international movement set up to provide feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.

Rod Isaacs, deputy head of sixth form, along with a dedicated fund-raising student team, have a number of charity initiatives in the pipeline. In April over 20 students will complete the Coventry Way Walk and in March a cultural Irish Night will provide Irish music and entertainment all to raise money for the Betsy Williams school.

Mary’s Meals provides daily meals in school for over 450,000 children in Africa, Asia, Latin America and eastern Europe.
