A BREAKFAST club set up by the Huddersfield Town Foundation has been given a four-figure boost.
The Lockwood-based Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce has backed the scheme with a donation of £1,200.
The money will go towards funding the Early Kick-Off Breakfast Club which has been launched at Hillside Primary School, Newsome.
Chamber executive director Andrew Choi presented the cheque to foundation trustee Sean Jarvis.
The cash will help provide pupils from the school with a free nutritious breakfast over the course of the school year.
Sean said: “When we first presented the idea behind the Huddersfield Town Foundation and launched Early Kick-Off during the summer, Andrew was the first man to stand up during the presentation and pledge his financial support.
“I would like to thank him and the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce for its very generous donation.”
Initially, Early Kick-Off – the brainchild of Town chairman Dean Hoyle – aims to directly benefit about 50 pupils at each of five specially selected primary schools throughout the full 39 week 2012-13 academic year.
Support for the venture has come from several Huddersfield Town Club Partners Total Foodservice, Kirklees College, Kirklees Council, Kid Premiership, Caterers Choice and Stafflex.
Ingredients for the breakfasts include fruits, grains, dairy products and other protein-rich foods.
The produce is delivered to the schools free of charge and it is then up to the schools and its volunteers to make the breakfasts.
