20:20 for Mary

Earlier in the year, a few of our students met the founder and Global Chief Executive of Mary’s Meals, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow. Mary’s Meals is a charity which works to provide children with a daily meal at a place of education. Founded in 2002, it has grown from its first feeding operation of 200 children in Malawi to a worldwide campaign, providing free school meals in hundreds of schools and feeding more than one and a half million children daily. Mary’s Meals is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, by its founders, who were inspired by their Catholic faith.


 ‘20:20 for Mary’ is a Painsley MAC initiative in which each pupil has been challenged to raise £20 by the end of February 2020, and a further £20 by the end of December 2020.

Students have risen to the task through a wide variety of fundraising initiatives! Cake sales, sponsored events and raffles have all helped us to have reached £1800 of our £2000 target.
