A school kitchen being built in Malawi is to be named in honour of a nine-year-old blogger who has raised £85,000 for charity.
Martha Payne started the NeverSeconds blog six weeks ago, posting daily pictures of, and opinions about, her school lunches.
The blog has received 6m views and won the support of celebrity chefs Jamie Oliver and Nick Nairn.
On Friday Martha was told by Argyll and Bute council to stop taking photos for her blog as media coverage had apparently left catering staff fearing for their jobs. But the council reversed its decision after a barrage of negative publicity in the media and on social networking sites.
