Film stars Sophie and Emma Thompson are supporting Mary’s Meals new Double the Love campaign, which aims to help feed hungry children living in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Donations made to Mary’s Meals this winter will be doubled by a group of generous supporters- up to £1.6m to provide children with a nutritious meal at school.

Long-time Mary’s Meal supporter, Sophie said: “Emma and I were marvelling about how Mary’s Meals provides food at school for children living in the most desperate circumstances, encouraging them to gain an education that will, in the future, help them out of poverty.

“We are delighted to announce that donations made to this awesome charity this winter will be doubled – meaning even more little ones will receive a daily serving of Mary’s Meals.”

Mary’s Meals was founded in 2002 and has grown from feeding 200 children in Malawi to more than two million every school day in 19 countries around the world.

Emma added: “I am overjoyed that a charity founded there is changing the lives of children in some of the world’s poorest countries. It truly is an incredible achievement. Double The Love presents a wonderful opportunity for us all to get behind Mary’s Meals and show children living in the world’s poorest countries that we care.”

The Double the Love campaign runs until 31 January 2022. Find out more here
