This May, the Mini Vinnies are again supporting the charity Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is a charity providing one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. We recently sold pancakes in aid of this charity and were overwhelmed by the school’s response. We would like to do even more to help. Many children receiving Mary’s Meals don’t have basic learning tools such as pencils and notepads. We are supporting them to get the most out of their lessons by collecting the things they need. For many, a Mary’s Meals backpack will be the only gift they’ll have ever had.
The Mini Vinnies held an assembly to tell everyone about the appeal. They are looking forward to collecting all the items and putting the backpacks together to send out to counties lie Malawi. Each class is being given an item/items to collect for the backpacks, these are:
Reception – Small Balls
Year 1 – Pens, pencils and rulers
Year 2 – Rubbers rulers and pencil sharpeners
Year 3 – Pencil cases
Year 4 – Notepads
Year 5 – Soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes
Year 6 – Face cloths
All items to be in school before Friday 26th May.
