The Breakfast Club, which is supported by Newcastle United Foundation as part of their Premier League Primary Stars programme, will support 80 children with a free nutritious breakfast each day 39 weeks of the year for the next school year.
The children from the Moorside Primary will also benefit form the support of Foundation staff who use the appeal of football and sport to engage, motivate and inspire. Premier League Primary Stars aims to develop skills and ambition both on and off the sports field – supporting healthier and more positive futures.
Newcastle United Foundation works with over 200 across Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside and Northumberland each year.
Greggs Foundation’s first Breakfast Club was established in 1999 as part of a Business in the Community ‘Seeing is Believing’ event. The event was in response to growing concerns that children were attending school without having any breakfast.
Kate Bradley, Head of Newcastle United Foundation, added: “We’re delighted to be able to support Greggs Foundation by sponsoring a breakfast club at Moorside Primary. Both charities are committed to giving young people the best start possible, whether that’s through a healthy nutritious breakfast or achieving their goals through football. ”
Lynne Hindmarch of The Greggs Foundation added: The Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club scheme helps to provide thousands of children, specifically in disadvantaged areas who may not ordinarily eat breakfast, with a nutritious start to their busy school day. Our Breakfast Club teams serve over four million slices of toast to over 23,000 children each year. By using volunteers and securing funding from a range of partners such as Newcastle United Foundation the Greggs Foundation ensures that breakfast clubs are set up and managed free of charge to ensure all children can attend.”
