School raises money for children in Malawi

Andy Morris 3rd Dec, 2018

A SCOTTISH-themed fund-raiser saw over 100 students and staff at Princethorpe College raise hundreds to help feed hungry pupils at a school in Malawi.

Championed by sixth form students and assistant head of sixth form Rod Isaacs, students supported World Porridge Day, raising over £200 for the Scottish charity Mary’s Meals.

Instead of buying their usual mid-morning snack, students were encouraged to buy a traditional Scottish breakfast – a pot of porridge – from the College refectory in return for a small donation.

The Scottish theme continued at lunchtime on the school fields where brave students participated in the William Wallace Welly Wanging Challenge in an attempt to break the college record.

The money raised will be used to support an ongoing feeding programme at Makalanga Primary School in Malawi.
