I posted a blog way back on 9th July 2014 about our firm’s support of Mary’s Meals. Since the beginning of 2011 until July 2014 Mitchells Roberton has donated 450 filled backpacks to be gifted to children receiving Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is a registered charity that sets up school feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities. It is a simple idea-by providing a daily meal in a place of education chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that provides an escape route from poverty. Since July 2014 Mitchells Roberton has donated a further 145 backpacks each filled with a notebook, pencils, coloured pencils, a rubber and a pencil case. We also put in every pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, a towel, a new outfit, sandals, a ball and a spoon. All of this is funded from staff  and client donations. Margaret Ritchie our receptionist who organises this project says “ It is a wonderful charity which Mitchells Roberton will continue to support.” To find our more about this wonderful cause, please follow this link: http://www.marysmeals.org.uk/what-you-can-do/backpack-project/
