Post 16 Chooses St Mark's Meals As Lenten Charity

Students fundraising for St Mark's Meals

Sixth Form students at St Paul’s Catholic School have chosen local charity, St Mark’s Meals to benefit from their Lenten fundraising efforts.

The charity says that one in three children (almost 23,000) in Milton Keynes live in poverty and the reality of this is that many of them will arrive at school already hungry and leave at the end of the day knowing that they will go without an evening meal. To remedy this St Mark’s Meals provides schools and children’s centres with emergency meal boxes – packed with a recipe card and all the ingredients needed to make a delicious meal for four – which can be given for free to vulnerable families.

Paul and Becky from St Mark’s Meals visited Year 13 today to tell them more about the charity’s work, thank them for their support and give them some fundraising ideas. Paul delivered some interesting and shocking facts including telling students that children who went hungry throughout secondary school could end up five years behind their peers in terms of learning.

Sixth Formers are now planning a range of fundraising activities including a Year 13 v Year 12 football match.  We will keep you posted about their activities and their fundraising success.
