A COLLECTION of school backpacks has been started at the Scottish Parliament by MSPs including North East Liberal Democrat Alison McInnes. It is part of the Mary’s Meals project in countries such as Malawi, Liberia and Haiti.
The project feeds more than 600,000 children.
Mary’s Meals provide a small backpack filled with basic school equipment and some personal items. For details visit www.marysmeals.org.uk/what-you-can-do/backpack-project/
