A Scottish charity that provides meals to more than a million impoverished children around the world is to benefit from £5 million in UK government funding.

Mary’s Meals will receive the cash after its Feed Our Future campaign was selected for the Department for International Development’s (DFID) UK Aid Match scheme.

The funding will go towards a project to expand and develop the charity’s school feeding programmes in Malawi and Zambia.

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, Mary’s Meals founder and chief executive, said: “We are so thankful to our quite amazing supporters.”
