18 Nov Hillside Enjoys An Early Kick-off!
The third ‘Early Kick-Off’ Huddersfield Town Foundation Breakfast Club was launched at Hillside Primary School on Monday.
‘Early Kick-Off’ is an exciting scheme that will help ensure the young people of Huddersfield and the wider community start their day in the right way – with a healthy nutritious breakfast.
Around 30 youngsters turned up to school on Monday morning to find Town’s legendary Club Ambassador Andy Booth sat alongside to discuss all things Huddersfield Town as they enjoyed their breakfast.
After enjoying food such as fruits, grains, dairy products and other protein-rich foods, the kids enjoyed a few activities before their school day started – with a few even drawing pictures of ‘Boothy’ back in his playing days!
Several other club staff, accompanied by representatives from Foundation supporters One17 Design, Total Foodservice and Kirklees Catering Services, were also on hand to help the terrific staff running the club at Hillside Primary School.
Initially ‘Early Kick-Off’ will directly benefit around 50 pupils at each of five specially selected primary schools throughout the full 39 week 2012/13 academic year, made possible by generous donations to the Foundation charity and thanks to several Huddersfield Town Club Partners.
Huddersfield Town has joined forces with Total Foodservice, Kirklees College, Kirklees Council, Kid Premiership, Caterers Choice and Stafflex to make ‘Early Kick-Off’ possible. Food wholesalers Total Foodservice and Caterers Choice have used their extensive network of contacts to supply the healthy and nutritious breakfast together for the kids and Huddersfield Town will deliver it to the schools across the region, completely free of charge.
It is then up to the schools and its volunteers to make the breakfasts, but the Foundation’s help doesn’t end there; Club Partner and leading education provider Kirklees College is offering teachers and parents complimentary NVQ courses in food preparation and hygiene to make sure they know the best ways of ensuring their pupils benefit.
Hillside Primary School’s Breakfast Club was specifically backed by the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce’s donation of £1,200 – click HEREfor full information on the donation.
The final two Breakfast Clubs in the initial stage will launch over the comings weeks at Lowerhouses Junior and Infants and Rawthorpe Junior School.
