Breakfast of champions for Hypnos and Buswells Lodge Primary School
This week we presented our charity partner, Magic Breakfast, with a cheque for £15,000 – providing disadvantaged pupils across the UK with almost 70,000 healthy breakfasts.
The event took place at Buswells Lodge Primary School in Leicester where the team of our directors handed nutritious breakfasts out to children and parents and saw the important work carried out by the charity and the school first-hand.
We have undertaken a series of fundraising events for Magic Breakfast throughout the year, including a gruelling cycle ride where employees together notched up over 2,000 miles between our premises in Princes Risborough and Castle Donington. Directors have also cooked a breakfast for the workforce, and the company held a Duvet Day Raffle during the summer where staff entered a lucky draw to win an extra day’s leave.
Magic Breakfast provides healthy breakfasts and expert support to schools in disadvantaged areas of the UK. The team works tirelessly with hundreds of schools to develop long term sustainable solutions aimed at abolishing child hunger in the morning.
As our chosen charity partner for the year, we’re working hard to raise money for Magic Breakfast by holding a number of fundraising initiatives. It was so important for us to visit the school in Leicester and work with the charity to experience what the team does and see how hard they work to help disadvantaged children in the area.
Tom Halliley, corporate partnerships manager for Magic Breakfast, said: “It was wonderful to work with the directors at Hypnos during our visit to Buswells Lodge Primary school in Leicester and were thrilled that they joined in and helped hand out the breakfasts.
“We are extremely grateful for the cheque they presented to us as a result of their many fundraising efforts and want to thank everyone who has taken part and worked so hard to raise money. Without donations like these we would not be able to continue our charitable work and help thousands of disadvantaged children across the region.”
