SUNDERLAND striker Fraizer Campbell is backing Huddersfield Town Foundation’s Early Kick-Off breakfast club.
Fraizer, a former pupil of Lowerhouses Junior School has donated £1,200 towards the foundation’s latest breakfast club, which was attended by more than 20 kids on its first outing on Monday.
Sadly, Fraizer’s training commitments at the Stadium of Light prevented him from attending the breakfast club in person, but the cheque was gratefully received by the children on the morning.
However, the Town Foundation’s corporate fundraising officer Mandy Barwick was at Lowerhouses and she said:
“On behalf of the Town Foundation I’d like to thank Fraizer for his very generous donation to the Early Kick-Off breakfast club at
“That particular school is close to his heart as a former pupil and his donation will directly enable the charity to provide free, healthy, nutritious breakfasts to the kids, which allows them to start their day in the right way.
“It was fantastic to see the pupils of Lowerhouses enjoying their breakfast so much on Monday and I’d like to thank everyone who has made a donation, as well as all our partners, for helping us to make the difference in this way.”
Initially Early Kick-Off will directly benefit around 50 pupils at each of five specially selected primary schools throughout the 2012/13 academic year, made possible by generous donations to the Foundation charity and thanks to several Huddersfield Town Club Partners.
Huddersfield Town has joined forces with Total Foodservice, Kirklees College, Kirklees Council, Kid Premiership, Caterers Choice and Stafflex to make Early Kick-Off possible.
Food wholesalers Total Foodservice and Caterers Choice have used their extensive network of contacts to supply the healthy and nutritious breakfast together for the kids and Huddersfield Town will deliver it to the schools across the region, free of charge. It is then up to the schools and its volunteers to make the breakfasts, but the Foundation’s help doesn’t end there.
Club Partner and leading education provider Kirklees College is offering teachers and parents NVQ courses in food preparation and hygiene to make sure they know the best ways of ensuring their pupils benefit.
The final breakfast club in the initial stage will launch soon at Rawthorpe Junior School.
