Two Weymouth schools have received a generous cash donation to invest in their breakfast clubs.

Cereal company Kellogg’s has dished out a number of £1,000 donations to schools across the south west, including two in Weymouth.

The grants can be used by schools to invest in any aspect of their breakfast clubs, from equipment to food and learning materials. 

A recent study suggested that 42 per cent of children arrive to school hungry every day, with 59 per cent of teachers believing this to be due to a lack of food at home.

Chris Silcock, Managing Director of Kellogg’s UK and Ireland, said: “We are proud to have supported thousands of breakfast clubs up and down the country for 26 years. 

“We know that during trying times, Breakfast Clubs can help to improve children’s school attendance and attainment, as well as alleviating hunger in some cases. Yet, it’s not just the children that benefit. The commitment from Kellogg’s to help schools through its Breakfast Club grants can also often be a lifeline to parents too.” 

Schools are still able to apply for the grant here:
