Over 100 Breakfasts Served At New Club

Pupils of all ages attended the launch of the Town Foundation’s 32nd ‘Early Kick-Off Breakfast Club’ and indulged in a healthy, nutritious start to the day.

The launch of the Breakfast Club at Almondbury Community School welcomed students from all key stages – High School, Junior School and Infant School – and saw in excess of 100 breakfasts served that morning.

The Town Foundation’s flagship initiative has gone from strength-to-strength and at 8am on Monday 17 September 2018 pupils kick started their day with toast, crumpets, cereal, fruit and juice.

Following the wholesome breakfast, activities were arranged for all the pupils with some parents staying for the club with the junior and infant students.

The junior school pupils then challenged the Town Foundation staff to a game of frustration and won!

Whilst, children from the infant breakfast club had books, colouring pages and stickers to keep them entertained.

They also had a visit from Huddersfield Town mascot Terry the Terrier who had his picture taken with the pupils and waved them off to their lessons.

A number of Town Foundation staff were in attendance alongside Trustee Caroline Lee, Jeanette Cartwright from Kirklees Catering and Club Ambassador Andy Booth.

The Town Foundation’s Head of Operations and Events, Julie Sheffield, commented:

“Our ‘Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs’ hit a new landmark this week as we opened our first ever multi-school club.

“It was amazing to see all the children mixing together ahead of their school day, whilst enjoying a nutritious start to the day.

“It was also lovely to see lots of teachers and staff involved in the breakfast club along with some school governors.

“The Breakfast Clubs are going from strength-to-strength and I’m delighted we’re continuing to make a difference in the community.”
