Winston’s Wish, the leading charity for bereaved children, is looking for supporters in the Essex area to join in with their Great British Brekkie fundraising week which is being held from the 10th – 16th February 2014.
Winston’s Wish wants the people of Essex, together with their family, friends, colleagues or classmates, to join them and help raise £50,000 to support bereaved children by hosting a charity breakfast in February.
It is a known fact that breakfast is an important meal helping everyone, including children, have a more positive proactive day. When you start with a nutritious and balanced breakfast, you’re getting the energy you need to embrace the morning, refuelling your body and brain and kick-starting your metabolism. Life is so busy nowadays and this most important meal of the day is often forgotten.
From the 10th – 16th February Winston’s Wish is asking everyone in and around Essex to hold their own Great British Brekkie and revive the tradition of the Great British breakfast! This can be anything from a traditional full English to a good ol’ cuppa and toast! Let your imagination get boiling!
When?10th – 16th February 2014
Where?ANYWHERE! Your home, work, school, village hall, local pub…the possibilities are endless!
What?Breakfast…think muesli, muffins, fresh fruit salad, pancakes with hot maple syrup, sumptuous berries with fresh cream, freshly squeezed orange juice, aromatic filter coffee, thick sizzling bacon in a doorstop sandwich or a delicious bagel filled with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Or why not go glam with a champagne breakfast for friends or take time out to have a tea and toast moment with your work colleagues. The possibilities are endless but they will all set you up for the day and raise vital funds for bereaved children at the same time.
How much?It’s free to register, we just ask that all of your guests donate whatever they can!
Winston’s Wish supporter Julie, based in Nazeing, took part in the first ever brekkie and is excited to be supporting the week again this year. She says: “My children and I are supporting the Great British Brekkie again this year by hosting a brunch. We will be serving cakes, pastries and bucks fizz from our home to the local community. We will also be holding a raffle to raise extra money and many businesses and local people have kindly donated prizes. The food for our event has been donated by Tesco at Waltham Abbey and local mums will be baking cakes and biscuits for us too. The community spirit is thriving in Nazeing and all for an amazing cause!
Winston’s Wish is a charity close to our hearts as my four children lost their dad to suicide two years ago. Erin, Sam, Ben and Daniel inspire every day with their courage, positivity and happy little faces.”
Speaking about the Great British Brekkie and the continued support of Julie, Erin, Sam, Ben and Daniel, Chloe Moorhead, Chief Brekker, says “We are thrilled that Julie and her children are going to hold a brekkie again this year. Their support is fundamental to our work and we’re asking everyone in and around Essex to join the breakfast revolution too and support our second Winston’s Wish Great British Brekkie week. Every single penny counts and the money raised will make a life-changing difference to bereaved children, young people and their families.”
