Porridge Served In St Helier
The Rotary Club has been serving porridge breakfasts in town for World Porridge Day.
Serving stations at Charing Cross and outside the Pomme D’Or have been dishing up oats and toppings in exchange for a donation.
All the money raised is going to Mary’s Meals, a charity which offers food to the world’s poorest children while they are at school.
Richard Harwood from the Rotary Club says a little money goes a long way;
“The difference that we can make to people’s lives with this is just truly exceptional. It only costs £13.90 to feed a child for an entire school year. The donations that the public kindly give us make a massive difference to so many people.”
Several workplaces including Ogier, PwC, UBS and BNP have had Porridge Stations in their offices this morning too.
Mary’s Meals works in 17 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, providing daily meals to poor children in a place of learning.
It now feeds more than 1.3 million children every day.
