£450 donation for Mary’s Meals

At last Wednesday's meeting of Monifieth Rotary Club in Grange Golf Club, president Mike Leonard was presented with a cheque for Mary's Meals by Dominique Ritchie, a Monifieth High School pupil who ran a coffee morning which raised nearly �180 for the charity. 'Dominique was the Club's candidate for a Rotary Youth Leadership Award and members agreed that her donation would be enhanced from club funds to give '�450 to Mary's Meals. 'The charity provides one daily meal in a place of education in order to attract chronically poor children into a classroom where they gain an education that can be their ladder out of poverty. Mary's Meals began by feeding 200 children in Malawi in 2002, and today over 600,000 children are fed daily in 16 different countries around the World.'Our picture shows Dominique with Nick Day (left), the club's vocational and youth convener, and president Mike Leonard.
