GREGGS has launched a breakfast club at a Keighley school.

The initiative will offer 60 children a free breakfast at Holycroft Primary.

Options include toast, low-sugar cereal, fruit, yoghurt and juice.

The Greggs Foundation says that as well as providing children with a nutritious meal before the start of school, the venture gives pupils the chance to interact with each other and staff ahead of classes beginning.

There are now over 700 Greggs Foundation breakfast clubs across the UK – with an aim of reaching 1,000 by 2025.

Since the scheme was launched in 1999, over 58 million free meals have been served up.

Lynne Hindmarch, breakfast club manager for the Greggs Foundation, said: "No child should ever start their day without breakfast, which is why we’re delighted to be opening this new club at Holycroft Primary School.

"Through breakfast clubs such as this, we’re able to support over 47,840 children each day nationally. Our target is to serve 70,000 breakfasts every school day within three years."

The average breakfast club costs £3,000 to run for an academic year, and customers can donate to the programme when making a purchase at Greggs stores.
