Grace Full - extended

Year 1

Philip Jepps

£8,245.63 raised towards our £3,698.00 target.

Grace Full was initially launched in October 2017 by Revd Philip Jepps when he realised his treatment for cancer had not been successful and wanted to leave a lasting legacy for Mary's Meals, raising enough money to feed all the children in Dillon School in Liberia daily. This project will be an ongoing commitment for the Jepps family. We were amazed and touched to find that by the time he died a week later, people had kindly donated enough to feed 150 children for a year. 4 weeks after the launch, with the help of your amazing generosity, the target to feed all 308 children in the school for a year has been reached. As we are aware of a number of Advent Appeal's and cake sales happening in Churches and Schools connected with dad we have extended his project to feed a second school. He would be delighted!

With all our thanks,

Daphne, Andrew, John, Helen and Simon

Philip says…

Thank you to all of you for your support - we are delighted to have already raised enough to sponsor 2 entire schools for a year, and more! We love hearing about the ongoing events with Advent appeals and cake sales - we 're really hoping that we will soon have raised enough to feed a 1000 children, which is an amazing thought as we come into the Christmas period. Many thanks and love from the extended Jepps family this Christmas.
