18 Sep Dixon Visits Ashbrow
Defender pays surprise visit to Early Kick-Off Breakfast Club
Youngsters at Ashbrow’s Town Foundation Early Kick-Off Breakfast Club enjoyed their morning meal with Town left-back Paul Dixon on Wednesday.
The Scottish international accompanied Mandy Taylor and Andy Booth from Town who were also joined by Stephen Baxter and Greg Robertson from Robertson Baxter and Kate France from Uniform Exchange.
Boothy and Dixon engaged with the 100 children that attended the Club around the breakfast tables while Greg Robertson worked behind the serving hatch and Stephen Baxter acted as the waiter!
After enjoying breakfast the group were given a tour of the schools grounds by the youngsters which culminated in Andy Booth opening the school’s new Chicken Coup.
The Town Foundation’s Corporate Fundraiser Mandy Taylor commented: “Our visit to Ashbrow was incredibly rewarding and to see first-hand, the difference that the charity is making in one of many local schools was humbling indeed. Clearly the pupils arrived with a hearty appetite and it was encouraging to see them opting for the healthy options including Fruity Pots and raisins and tucking into bowls of tasty porridge. I urge anyone who is keen to help us to guarantee that this and further Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs can continue to develop and grow to contact me for further information or visit our website, www.htafcfoundation.com”
Ten breakfast clubs are now up and running across Huddersfield and the wider area. 40,000 healthy breakfasts have been served to date while with the help of Igloo Books and Kid Premiership 15,000 reading diaries were delivered to schools ahead of the new school term.
