  • 31. Since the end of the Easter holidays, Martha has been writing a daily food blog about her school lunches, with the support of her dad, as a self-initiated writing project. It also set out in the noble aim to fund the building of kitchens for less fortunate children in Malawi, through theMary's Meals charity.
  • 32. This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today. 
  • 33. “But unlike most ten-year-olds Martha has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help feed children in Malawi, been the subject of a BBC documentary and been toasted by Scotland’s first Minster Alex Salmond in the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle.”
  • 34. Martha shows every facet of great learning: ...real world change, making the environment around her better, sharing her thinking with the world, having a conscious for the world beyond her immediate horizons...
