St Gabriel's MARY'S MEALS

Mary's Meals is a registered charity, formerly known as Scottish International Relief, which sets up school feeding programmes in some of the world's poorest communities, where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education.






The sum of £1150-00 has recently been sent to Marys Meals. £1000-00 of this money was a donation by a parishioner who wishes to remain anonymous. The thank you letter from Marys Meals is on the notice board at the back of the church. Thank you all for your generosity and continued support. 



Many of the parishioners who have donated money to Mary’s Meals in the past few months have done so instead of giving a birthday or anniversary present or in someone’s memory or just a simple thank you for a kindness. Some people have said it would be nice to have some token to give to the person whose name the donation was being made in. On the notice board at the back of the church there is an assortment of greeting cards and inside the cards are stickers which read:   “A donation has been made in your name which will help to feed and educate child in the poorest countries in the world”. These stickers are available to anyone who wishes to make a donation to Marys Meals as a gift to another person, and remember if you pay income tax Gift Aid forms are also available. Thank you for your support.


MARY’S MEALS - Since Christmas a further £200-00 pounds has been donated to MARY’S MEALS. The thank you letters are on the notice board at the back of the church. Thank you all for your support it is very much appreciated.
