The Scots College hosted a Quiz Night on the 8th April to raise funds for the work of Mary’s Meals, the charity founded in Argyll over 20 years ago.
Mary’s Meals has recently set up an office in Rome and the College, a regular supporter of the charity, held a Quiz Night to raise funds for the work of the charity that can trace it’s roots back to 1992, and Dalmally on the West Coast of Scotland. Since then the work of the charity – aimed at giving one school meal a day to every child, has now reached over 1 million kids. The charity began with projects in Malawi and has grown to efforts spread from the Caribbean to Asia.
The night, held on the first Friday after the Easter holidays was a great success, with friends of the college travelling up the Via Cassia and joining in an evening of fun. Proceedings got under way with Fr.Agnello offering grace before a pasta supper was served. A brief video described the worthwhile work of the charity and then, Ryan Black, the nights quizmaster got proceedings under way.
The quiz is part of the communities efforts during this Jubilee Year to support and highlight the call for corporal works of Mercy. A call Mary’s Meals heeds with its efforts to feed the hungry. The evening raised €1500 for the charity and the college would like to thank all those who took part, organised and donated gifts for the raffle.
