Sonia's mid-life crisis

Year 1

Sonia Rutherford

£1,696.75 raised towards our £1,696.00 target.

To channel my mid-life crisis to something positive, over my 40th birthday year, I’m raising funds for Mary’s Meals. This will be used to sponsor a whole school, ensuring every child attending receives a meal every day for a whole school year.

Mary’s Meals is a Whitespace client and the Scottish-based charity is long-established, robust and effective, setting up long-term support in local communities and ensuring it is self-sustaining by buying food from local producers. They currently feed around 990,000 children every day and are aiming to increase this by 50% in the next three years.

It only costs £12.20 to feed one child for a whole school year, and amazing that a whole school of 139 children can be provided for, for less than £2,000.

Thanks so much for your support!

Your fundraising will go even further with Double The Love! Give before 1 March 2019, and the UK government will match public donations, up to £2 million. While match funding from the UK government cannot be counted towards your fundraising target, it will be allocated to Double The Love, meaning your fundraising will reach even more hungry children in Zambia and around the world.
