Winston’s Wish, the leading charity for bereaved children, is looking for supporters in Scotland 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 Scotland, 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 Scotland 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!
Local Lauder mums, Amanda Jordan, Kate Farnsworth and Ray Theedam Parry are going to be holding their very own Great British Brekkie at their local primary school. They said: “In 2011 two young families at our school lost their Dads suddenly and unexpectedly. As a result of this we are taking part in the Winston’s Wish Great British Brekkie to help to make people aware of the great work that this charity does. Winston’s Wish is working towards ensuring that no bereaved child will go without the support they need. Our local school have kindly allowed us to run an outdoor pop-up Bacon Buttie stall for parents on Thursday 13th February during the school rush hour in the morning as well as a Teatime Treats stall at the end of the school day. We are keeping our fingers crossed for unseasonably warm and dry weather!
On the same day the pupils have been invited to take part in a Winston’s Wish non-school uniform ‘Wear W Day’ too. They can turn up to school in anything beginning with the letter ‘W’ – e.g. wigs, wands, wellies and walrus outfits! All proceeds will be going to Winston’s Wish.”
Speaking about the Great British Brekkie, Chloe Moorhead, Chief Brekker, said “Bring on the brekkie!
We’re asking everyone in Scotland to join the breakfast revolution and support our second Winston’s
Wish Great British Brekkie week. Every single penny counts and the money raised will make a lifechanging
difference to bereaved children, young people and their families.”
