advocates fundraising for the porridge club at church

Our awesome advocates were out at the weekend presenting at local parishes for the Porridge club ‘Christmas Joy Vouchers’ fund.

A huge THANK YOU to the generosity of parishioners at St Edmunds, Godalming and St Joseph’s Milford, who donated/pledged over £850 at their Sunday morning and Youth services masses.  Also to St Michael’s in Camberley, where we received over £700 in donations from their Sunday morning service, afternoon Carol Service and the nursery group’s advent collections.

About the Porridge Club

The Porridge Club runs at Luyobolola Community Primary School in Mazabuka.  Over 700 children attend the school for free each day; they are all provided with a bowl of nutritionally balanced porridge during one of the breaks between lessons.  For many of these children, the meal provided through the Porridge Club may be the only meal they have that day.  For some families, they can only afford to feed one of their children each day.

£10 feeds one child a bowl of Porridge for a whole year.  Thanks to our incredible supporters we can now feed at least 155 children for the next year. How amazing is that!
