Marys Meals Backpack project - A final ‘thank you’ to everyone who has donated items or money to the Backpack project which have enabled me to reach a total of 300 completed packs, all of which will have been sent out to children in Malawi. I am going to stop collecting backpacks for the time being but I am still an Ambassador for Mary’s Meals so if you know of a school or community group which might be interested in learning about the charity please let me know. Alternatively, if you are interested adopting the Backpack Project for a while I can give you more detail on that. Best wishes. (Jacky Seymour, jackyseymour66@gmail.com)
