Meals blog girl raises £100,000
Jun 25 2012
A schoolgirl who was banned by her council from blogging about her school meals has helped raise £100,000 for a charity that feeds poverty-stricken children.
Martha Payne, nine, was told she could no longer take photos of her school lunches for her NeverSeconds blog as media coverage apparently left catering staff fearing for their jobs.
But Argyll and Bute Council backtracked on its decision after a barrage of negative publicity and a backlash on social networking sites.
