Mary’s Meals is our Charity of the Year for 2017, and we’re delighted to say that after almost nine months of fundraising we’ve so far collected over £3,000.
Donations have come from generous customers who have donated either £1, £2 or £5 using our checkout, and we’re doing out bit too by matching every donation.
Two of our wonderful staff, Lewis and Kurt, both raised money for Mary’s Meals by completing yesterday’s Loch Ness marathon in Inverness, helping to raise a further £600 between them. Kurt managed to place an impressive 40th overall, while Lewis completed his first ever marathon.
Mary’s Meals are our charity of the year because of their amazing work in providing meals to schoolchildren in some of the world’s most impoverished communities. The charity provides a total of 1.2 million meals per year, and a donation of just £5 to Mary’s Meals can provide for six months’ worth of meals for one student.
It’s not too late to play your part. You can donate £1, £2 or £5 to Mary’s Meals whenever you purchase a TEFL course, advanced course, resource or online course extension. You can also still donate to our marathon runners’ Just Giving pages below:
We’re excited to see how much more we can raise in the final months of 2017, and we hope you’ll be able to help us with this great cause!
