Huddersfield Town have kicked off their new season of breakfast clubs.
And the scheme has certainly scored with local youngsters.
Since the scheme began in earnest in March, some 7,000 breakfasts have been served up to children at Kirklees schools.
Ten schools are already signed up, an 11th will join later this month – and Town Foundation fundraiser Mandy Taylor hopes to have 15 on board by Christmas.
This week’s new term got off to a flying start at Ashbrow Infant School when Town defender Paul Dixon was on hand to help serve up the breakfasts.
He was joined by Huddersfield Town Ambassador Andy Booth, scheme sponsor Stephen Baxter, of Baxter Robertson, and Kate France, of the charity Uniform Exchange.
All were there to see the youngsters enjoy a healthy breakfast of cereals, porridge, beans on toast, fruit and yoghurts.
Mrs Taylor said: “We launched the Breakfast Club on March 4 and are delighted with how its gone. Between then and the start of the summer holidays, we served up 7,000 breakfasts.
“We are indebted to our supporters especially Total Food Solutions, of Dalton, and Caterers Choice, who supply the foods. We give them to the schools and then staff and volunteers run the Breakfast Clubs.
“A lot of money is being pledged to the project and the Town chairman Dean Hoyle is matching much of that.
“Not only are the kids getting a healthy breakfast, but the schools report they are also seeing better attendance records and better behaviour, as the children develop social skills.
“Parents, too, think it’s a success and many are volunteering to help.
“We’d love it to get 15 schools signed up by Christmas.”
