We were delighted this week to present our 2017 Charity of the Year Mary’s Meals with their cheque for over £4,000.
We raised over £1,500 thanks to the generous donations of our customers, and we matched every single donation. We also raised money through some tremendous feats of endurance, as two of our staff completed the Loch Ness Marathon, raising an extra £700 in total.
It only costs £13.90 for Mary’s Meals to feed a child school meals for a year, so all-in-all we’ve helped over 290 students for year – equivalent to an entire school!
Mary’s Meals representative Bridget said:
“Thank you for your generosity. With it costing just £13.90 to feed a child for the year the money raised will go a long way.”
TEFL Org UK Managing Director Jennifer Mackenzie said:
“We’re tremendously proud of the work we did last year to raise money for Mary’s Meals, and know that the money we’ve raised will make a real difference to the lives of students.
“It was fantastic working with Mary’s Meals last year as our inaugural Charity of the Year and it’s something we’re delighted to be continuing this year and hopefully for many years to come.”
Our Charity of the Year for 2018 is ActionAid, and we’re looking to raise even more money this year.
You can help out by donating either £1, £2 or £5 when you purchase one of our courses or resources through our online checkout. Once again, we’ll match every donation you make and you can be sure that the money is going towards a fantastic cause.
