To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded Sandon School, Ambergate Sports College, and The Garth School, with £1,000 each to enhance their Breakfast Clubs and help feed children in the morning.
GANF Schools and The Garth, were selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in Breakfast Clubs as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund this service for their pupils.
Breakfast Clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre‐school care. 68 per cent of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their Breakfast Club, according to Kellogg’s research.
Stela Plamenova, Executive Headteacher of GANF, said:
“We were thrilled to receive this boost of funding for the schools. Our Breakfast Clubs across the Federation are about much more than food for our pupils, they provide a chance for pupils to get to know their teachers better and form close friendships with their peers. Huge thanks to Kellogg’s.”
Claire Moore, Headteacher of The Garth School, said:
“We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. Thanks to the support from Kellogg’s, we can now improve our Breakfast Club services for our pupils.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said:
“We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK. We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we know that equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.”
Kellogg’s has supported over 3,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 20 years – that’s 70 million bowls of cereal to children all over the UK since 1998!
