He said: "I'm proud because he's a fellow Scot. Every day Magnus lets children know that they matter, that someone thousands of miles away cares about them."
Mary's Meals was founded when Mr MacFarlane-Barrow and his brother Fergus made a plan to deliver aid to Bosnia while having a drink at their local pub.
Mr Butler said: "They were having a drink and talked about the heart-wrenching images of the Bosnian war they'd seen on TV. So they made an extraordinary decision that most of us don't make. They decided to help."
Mary's Meals provides a school meal a day for almost 460,000 children in 16 countries. [Karie Gillett]
