PUPILS at a Rowley Regis school will soon receive better breakfast services after being handed a £1,000 grant from a cereal company giant.

Whiteheath Education Centre, based in Hawes Lane, has been awarded the cash by Kellogg’s to help provide youngsters with improved early-morning sessions.

Lesley Yates, headteacher, said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We have since been able to purchase equipment and breakfast ingredients for our club.

“These resources will help us to provide our breakfast club services for our children and their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”

The company has been a champion of school breakfast clubs since 1998 and has helped thousands of schools with funding and food.

Kate Prince, corporate social responsibility manager at Kellogg’s, said: “We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, but equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.

“We’re proud to be able to support so many schools across the UK.”
