Soroptimists Support Byron at Christmas Fair

Byron Primary School held a Christmas Fair at the school on 30 November. There were lots of different stalls and activities for the children to spend their money. The Rights Respecting Steering Group were responsible for organising and running the Toy and Book stall. The children had donated pre-loved and good quality secondhand items.

The Soroptimists were asked to assist, and Jane and Stella Barnes volunteered. Everything was laid out in one of the classrooms. The stall was extremely popular, with children looking and eager to spend their pocket monies.

The proceeds were £147.10 and have been sent to Mary’s Meals Double the Love Campaign.  Donations made are being doubled up to £1 million.


This means donations will go even further at this critical time. In a world devastated by conflict, food insecurity and the cost-of-living crisis, bringing new hope to desperately hungry children with life-changing school meals have never been more important.

It costs just £19.15 to feed a child with Mary’s Meals every day for a school year. This winter, a donation of £19.15 will feed two children. So, through our joint effort an additional 15 children will be fed for a whole year transforming their lives.
