The Jock & Mary Elliot Memorial Trust
We are a Scottish registered charitable Trust which has supported Marys Meals since 2007 and now contribute £12,500 per annum to support Mponda School in Zomba and Ndirande Parish Under 6 Centre in Blantyre. Two of the Trustees(John & Liz Elliot) have visited these schools in 2009 ,2013 &2017. Over 2013 & 2017 our two daughters (who are both Trustees) & four teenage grandchildren joined us so as to gain an insight into the work of Marys Meals & also experience Africa. Based on our grandchildren's feedback our local school had a Mponda Day to give the Langholm pupils an insight into schooling in Malawi & raised funds which were used to purchase much needed furniture for Mponda School.
In 2022 we commenced another relationship with Stekaskills, near Blantyre, and have supported them by funding the installation of solar panels to provide power for their workshops.
