At Mary’s Meals, we are always up for a new challenge, whether it is feeding more children in the world’s poorest communities or taking on the UK’s toughest one day sporting event, The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon! Meet Mairead and Louise who have named their team, May the Quads Be Ever in Our Favour.
For a number of years, Louise has excelled at creating interest in the Quad as Digital Media Officer for Mary’s Meals and after seeing how much fun it looked decided to take this plunge herself.
A few years ago, Mairead visited a Mary’s Meals project and felt compelled to volunteer. Ten years later she’s now Mary’s Meals UK Press and Communications Officer. Mairead said, ‘It is amazing to be part of such a fantastic charity. I love the great outdoors and hillwalking, so pairing both Mary’s Meals and an outdoor challenge is ideal!’
Louie, the wee Scotty dog in the photo, is also an honorary team member and putting the girls through their paces. Mairead told us, ‘It’s great to have Louie on board, cheering us on. I’ve seen first-hand the difference our fundraising is making to children in Malawi which makes this all worthwhile.’
