Mary’s Meals—Work with some of the poorest people in Third World countries. We offer help by collecting unwanted/unused clothing and bedding (all textiles) and turning them into funds to carry out our work overseas. For better clothing, we receive a better price but even from rags we raise money that in turn helps us to feed starving children. (2 Black Poly Bags filled with textiles could generate enough funds to feed a child in Malawi FOR A YEAR (approx £7.00) world-wide and with your help we hope to continue expanding our feeding programme). PLEASE NOTE THE VAN WILL COLLECT AFTER THE SUNDAY MORNING MASSES ON SUNDAY, 26th MAY 2012—WE REGRET WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT BRIC-A-BRAC and we are unable to COLLECT IN THE EVENING. 2nd Collections on 25/26th May for Mary’s Meals.
