Game on as foot­ball club aids Dal­mally char­ity

The Oban Times - - News -

DAL­MALLY char­ity Mary’s Meals said it was de­lighted to an­nounce it has be­come an of­fi­cial char­ity part­ner of Southamp­ton Foot­ball Club.

The foot­ball club will sup­port the char­ity’s work through a sea­son-long fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive with the Saints Foun­da­tion.

This means all money raised will be split evenly be­tween Mary’s Meals and the Saints Foun­da­tion’s projects in Southamp­ton and the lo­cal area. The char­ity works to pro­vide a nu­tri­tious daily meal in schools in some of the poor­est coun­tries across the world – en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren to the class­room where they re­ceive food and an ed­u­ca­tion that can be a route out of poverty.

Magnus MacFar­lane-Bar­row, CEO and founder of Mary’s Meals, said: ‘We are hugely grate­ful to have been cho­sen as an of­fi­cial char­ity part­ner of Southamp­ton Foot­ball Club. This part­ner­ship will in­tro­duce us to new supporters and help us to feed more hun­gry chil­dren across the world. Mary’s Meals reached the mile­stone of feed­ing more than one mil­lion chil­dren across 12 coun­tries in the spring this year, how­ever, with 59 mil­lion chil­dren in the world still hun­gry, I be­lieve this work has just be­gun.’
