To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded Tor Bridge High in Estover, £1,000 to enhance their complimentary breakfast club and help feed students in the morning.
Tor Bridge High was one of many schools throughout the United Kingdom that was selected to receive the breakfast boost this anniversary year, with one grant to be given for every school day of 2018.
Kellogg’s has supported 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.
Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing a hub where students can meet and discuss any concerns they may have with their peers. 68 per cent of teachers believe students would struggle to concentrate in class without their breakfast club, according to Kellogg’s research.
Headteacher, Graham Roser said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We have since been able to purchase cereal, bread, beverages and preserves for our club. These resources will help us to provide our breakfast club services for our students and their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s. Mr Roser and Tor Bridge High staff would like to encourage our students to make good use of this great facility”.
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.”
