Winston’s Wish is calling out across the country for families, friends, colleagues and classmates to join them and help raise £50,000 to support bereaved children by hosting a charity breakfast in February 2015.
From the 9th–15th February, Winston’s Wish is asking everyone to make their morning special and revive the tradition of the Great British Breakfast! This can be anything from a sturdy full English, to a good old cuppa and toast, to a fancy continental dish.
A glittering list of celebrities is already backing the campaign, and over the coming weeks more star names will be sharing their favourite breakfast recipes. Some of the egg-xtraordinary star supporters enlisted so far includes Dame Judi Dench, Sol Campbell, Ruby Wax, Rachel Khoo, Jenny Eclair and Richard and Judy. Many more will be revealed in the lead-up to ‘brekkie’ week in February.
To support the campaign the Great British Brekkie website has been revamped to include sample ‘brekkie’ recipes, a gallery of supporters’ photos and videos, an interactive ‘brekkie’ map and online registration: www.greatbritishbrekkie.org.uk
Raising a toast to the Great British Brekkie, Chloe Moorhead, Chief ‘Brekker’, said:
“This is now our third Winston’s Wish Great British Brekkie and the campaign grows and gets more exciting every year! Every single penny counts and the money raised will make a life-changing difference to bereaved children, young people and their families”.
Reviving the often forgotten breakfast tradition serves as a reminder that breakfast is an important meal helping everyone, including children, to have a more positive and proactive day. A nutritious and balanced breakfast provides the energy needed to embrace the morning by refuelling the body and brain and kick-starting the metabolism.
Winston’s Wish supporter Julie, who took part in the first ever Great British Brekkie campaign, said:
“My children and I hosted a Great British Brekkie event and our local Sainsbury’s and Ocado supported us along with family and friends in our community. For our event, we chose to indulge our guests with cream cakes and Buck’s Fizz! Everyone had a fabulous time and my children and I were thrilled to raise over £800 for Winston’s Wish; a fantastic charity very close to our hearts”.
Richard and Judy, backing the campaign for the second year, added:
“We are so pleased to support the Winston’s Wish Great British Brekkie. Go on, sign up today!”
