The Saint George Charity has presented a cheque for 10,000 euros to the Emaus Social Kitchen in Estepona as part of its commitment to the ‘Feed a Child’ project which aims to provide a packed breakfast for dozens of schoolkids who otherwise would go without this most important of meals.

The money has been raised through a number of fundraising initiatives, many of which have been organised by Jojo France in Sotogrande. These include the annual charity quiz at the Hairy Lemon in Sotogrande Port, and a ‘Burpee Challenge’ which saw dozens of people pushing themselves to the limit to part their sponsors from their cash!

Big thanks also go the Sarah and Simon Dearing at the Rose & Thistle in Duquesa Port for their tireless fundraising for many local charities throughout the year, despite the difficult times for the hospitality industry.

And of course thanks go to everyone else who made a donation, enabling the Saint George Charity to support the ‘Feed a Child’ initiative.

The aim  is to provide packed breakfasts and lunches for the many children that would go hungry during the school day.

Every parent knows, and research has proven, that a hungry child finds it difficult to concentrate and therefore will underachieve at school. Education is the key to breaking the poverty cycle and therefore we have teamed up with Emaus Obra de Amor, who run six social kitchens throughout Málaga Province, to distribute lunch packs to these children who would otherwise go without food during school hours.

The Saint George Charity is pleased to collaborate with Emaus and all the good work they do to relieve hunger in the Province.
