Chatsmore pupils raise funds for Mary's Meals
Pupils at Chatsmore Catholic High School have been fundraising for Mary's Meals.
Mary’s Meals is an international aid charity that has its global headquarters in a rural barn in Scotland.
They provide over 1.2 million nutritious school lunches to the world’s hungriest children.
The meals are always served in a place of education which means that the children are nourished as they learn in order to build themselves a brighter future.
Mary’s Meals can provide one child in a developing country with a school lunch for one year for just £13.90.
At Chatsmore students held cake sales, sponsored events and gave their own money to support this important work.
The school had an original target of £1,390 (feeding 100 children for a year) but smashed it and raised £2059.56 thanks to the generosity of the whole school community.
The next fundraising campaign starts on the June 19.
Over a four week period, the school hopes to raise as much as possible for local charity St Barnabas.
The fundraising efforts will finish with the whole school taking part in a seven mile charity walk along Worthing sea front on the July 21.
