Last year was challenging, but as always, the kindness of our lovely My Weekly readers shone through. You donated to our Helping Hand Appeal in huge numbers, and your money will make a real difference to hungry children in the world’s poorest countries. Having visited some of the places where our charity partner Mary’s Meals feeds, I have seen first-hand how your money saves lives – and this week we have an update on how your donations last year will help (p38). Once again, a massive thank you for your unfailing generosity. Enjoy the issue and have a great week.
