For instead of wedding gifts, Stockbridge newlyweds Amanda and Duncan MacInnes asked guests to make a donation to charity – and brought in just over £5000 in the process.
The money, which will go to the charity Mary’s Meals, is enough to provide a daily meal for 327 children at the Omega Orphanage School in Liberia for a whole school year.
“I just love the fact that children are being fed in a place of education.
“Food and schooling seems like a given for us but when you start to think there are children around the world without these basic and fundamental needs being met, we had to do something.
“We honestly cannot think of a better gift than knowing that we are helping give children hope and reminding them that there are people across the world that care.”
