Details of Beneficiaries of the fundraiser: 

The St Mary’s Foundation Trust was created for the sole purpose of advancing the interests of St Mary’s to be an everlasting school.  Its goal is to create a capital fund with the interest earned being used to transform lives through the provision of financial support.  The Foundation would like to grow this programme so it can assist more girls in the years to come.


In addition, the Inanda Soup Kitchen NPO 121-981 will again be receiving a portion of the funds raised. The soup kitchen is based next to a church towards Inanda Dam and runs every Wednesday lunch time, when the 150 to 180 children come across after school to enjoy a hot meal. Robyn O Donavan (St Marys’ Old Girl) started this18 months ago. She works with a woman called Hlengiwe who lives near the church and knows the community’s needs. Funding has been mainly from friends and family relying mainly on financial donations, food, clothing or anything that might be going begging. R350 to R400 a week feeds the children.  


Robyn says “I feel like it is such a privilege for me to be running this soup kitchen as God has taught me so much along the way. I have also been amazed at how it all just happens week after week when there is sometimes nothing in the bank and someone will just pop out of nowhere.  I do believe that this has all been part of Gods plan to help these children and bring some joy to the community.”
