Stoats helps feed African school for a year
Oats company Stoats has completed its charity campaign ‘Pot for a Pot’, in partnership with Mary’s Meals, and has raised enough funds to feed a school in Liberia, West Africa, for an entire year.
All 300 children attending Bambo Town Primary School will each receive a nourishing meal every day for a year. Customers helped achieve the milestone by buying Stoats Original Porridge Charity Pots (pictured), and the donation from each pot will be used to feed a child at the school for one meal, with a mug of Likuni Phala porridge.
The Pot for a Pot campaign was founded around World Porridge Day, which is a global celebration of one of Scotland’s favourite dishes and directly supports Mary’s Meals to provide hungry children across the world with one meal every school day.
Tony Stone, MD of Stoats, comments: "We are extremely grateful to our customers for helping us to raise these funds, which will make a huge difference to the daily lives of children attending Bambo Town Primary School. Liberia is one of the world’s most impoverished countries and as an oats company, we know only too well what a good source of energy and nutrition these meals are. The further benefit is that the assurance of a daily meal also helps ensure the children attend school and receive the education they deserve".
