Blakemans supports school breakfast club with colouring books



Food manufacturer James T. Blakeman has supplied 
colouring books, pens, pencils, games and toys to a local primary school as part of its Breakfast Club sponsorship.

The Newcastle-under-Lyme based supplier provided the learning tools to Burnwood Primary School in Stoke-on-Trent, which it first started supporting in 2015.

The Breakfast Club project is part of an initiative launched by the Greggs Foundation in 1999 in response to growing concerns that many youngsters were attending school without having anything to eat first thing in the morning.

Support from the manufacturer allows more than 60 children from underprivileged backgrounds to be escorted to school via a minibus/walking bus where they are supplied with as much breakfast as they want at no cost.

Philip Blakeman, managing director at Blakemans, said: “We fully endorse the Breakfast Club’s values for improving health, nutrition, social awareness and attendance, which can only lead to a positive improvement in classroom performance and results.

“We have a great relationship with the school and as well as the official support via the Greggs Foundation and their Breakfast Club project, we support them with food for special events and other collections.

“The most recent trip with the colouring books and other things was fantastic – our staff got so many hugs it was lovely to see.”
