Stella Maris School in Heaton Mersey received a £200 donation to enhance their breakfast club with brand new equipment, following a national competition win.

Stella Maris, which is a member of the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club network, was one of two hundred schools from across the UK who was selected to receive the breakfast boost.

The school entered a competition which was featured in the cereal company’s Breakfast Club e-newsletter, which provides practical resources to ensure the sustainability of the club.

Children can be dropped off at school each day from 8am for no extra cost. Each morning there are different clubs and activities available for the children to participate in from sporting activities such as running to making and tasting club.

Head Teacher Norah Johnson said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We will purchase a new toaster and some supplies for our project “breakfast from around the world” for our making and tasting club. We would like to thank Kellogg’s for their support – it is great to see businesses supporting local communities.”

Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, but equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself. We’re proud to be able to support so many schools across the UK.”
