To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded Bridge Training Resources learning £1,000 to help provide a much-appreciated breakfast to young people attending the centre in Gloucester.
Bridge Training Ltd, which provides education to disengaged young people, was selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in breakfast clubs.
Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and with the advent of Covid-19 Bridge Training Ltd have found an increased need to support young people with the very basics of life such as nutrition.
Mark Harrod, MD of Bridge Training Ltd, said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We will be able to put this funding towards not only tea and coffee but fresh fruit and vegetables. We know, from experience, that our breakfast offering is really appreciated by our learners and its great to be able to continue to offer this in September.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many educational establishments 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 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.
