Howard Community Academy, in Bury St Edmunds, has been awarded £1,000 from Kellogg’s to enhance its breakfast club and feed pupils in the morning.

The school was selected to receive the boost after the cereal company announced it is donating more money to support breakfast clubs as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund the service.

Alison Weir, headteacher, said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation.

"We will be able to purchase games and a range of equipment for our club.

“These resources will help us to continue to provide our breakfast club services for our children and their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”

Breakfast clubs help improve pupils’ attendance and attainment by alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care.

Kate Prince, corporate social responsibility manager at Kellogg’s, said: “We’re proud to have spent over 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.”

The clubs at Howard Community are part of a wider swathe of support on offer to children to help give them the best possible education.

Kellogg’s has supported 4,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 23 years. This equates to 70 million bowls of cereal to children across the UK.
