A cause well supported in the Highlands has produced a new film featuring one of Scotland’s top film stars.

Love Reaches Everywhere, which features Gerard Butler, has been produced by Mary’s Meals and shows the work carried out in Liberia and Haiti.

Mary’s Meals normally serves nutritious meals in schools, attracting impoverished children to the classroom where they can gain an education that will one day be their ladder out of poverty.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the charity has developed safe methods of distribution which allow almost all the children who normally enjoy its meals to eat at home instead.

Daniel Adams, the UK executive director of Mary’s Meals, said: “Love Reaches Everywhere shows Gerard, who has starred in films such as 300 and P.S. I Love You, immersing himself in community life – teaching a maths lesson, planting crops in a school garden, carrying water from a local well, and even sharing acting tips with some children.”
