Thanks to the incredible kindness of our supporters we were able to raise €121,612, which is enough money to feed 6,645 children for a whole school year.

Despite the challenges of Covid-19, a slightly different version of the annual walk to Knock was able to go ahead, with those taking part following strict social distancing rules.

Patricia Friel, Director of Mary's Meals Ireland, said: "Once again we have been left amazed and astounded by the generosity of our supporters. Step By Step is always are wonderful campaign, but to have had a record breaking year, during the uncertainty of Covid-19 is remarkable.

“Our heartfelt thanks to each of our fantastic walkers, to our support drivers, to all who provided accommodation or refreshments, to everyone who prayed for the walk, and of course big thanks to all who have donated. Very special thanks to the walk committee."

There is still time to donate to Step By Step and be part of our record-breaking year.
