EARLY birds at Staple Hill Primary School have been given £1,000 to enhance their breakfast club.

Cereal company Kellogg’s donated the cash after their research showed breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care. 

The school was one of many throughout the UK that was selected to receive the breakfast boost. 

Arwa Said, the school’s headteacher, said: "We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We have been able to purchase additional resources and replace worn out items for our club. 

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

Kate Prince, corporate social responsibility manager at Kellogg’s, said: "We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, but equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself. We’re proud to be able to support so many schools across the UK."
