A WESTON primary school was given a boost from cereal company Kellogg’s, with a grant worth £450 to help fund a breakfast club.
Walliscote Primary School in Walliscote Road is one of 500 schools from across the country to receive a grant after research by Kellogg’s revealed that one in eight breakfast clubs have been forced to close because of budget cuts.
Kellogg’s launched the Help Give a Child a Breakfast campaign last October to help bridge the funding gap for schools.
Headteacher Jo Green, said: “Breakfast clubs are a lifeline for many children but with budgets being tight they could sadly become an unaffordable luxury in future.
“The grant will really help our club and we’ll look forward to spending the money on some new equipment including some games for the children as well as a selection of the children’s favourite cereals.”
