Brilliant Breakfasts

Our ambassador Danyl Johnson spent a busy morning visiting player-supported charity Magic Breakfast
Danyl Johnson joined pupils for breakfast at Gifford Primary School in West London

People's Postcode Lottery Ambassador Danyl Johnson served cereal and buttered bagels for pupils at Gifford Primary School in West London. He then joined a pop choir to perform songs for guests and children attending the school's Magic Breakfast club. 

Magic Breakfast partners with schools in disadvantaged areas across the country where some pupils arrive too hungry to learn.  The charity provides healthy food and expert support in order that every child at risk of hunger in their partner schools has access to a nutritious breakfast, without barrier or stigma.

Energising Minds

The charity has been supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery for over five years and has received over £1.6 Million in funding to date. This year players are funding an amazing one million healthy school breakfasts and 10 brand new breakfast clubs in schools across the UK, helping to fill bellies and energise minds and bodies for the morning of learning ahead. 

Sarah Wilson, Head Teacher of Gifford Primary, said, "Magic Breakfast provision has improved our attendance and really improved our punctuality. Children are really keen to come to school, they come rushing in so that they can have some breakfast."

Carmel McConnell MBE, founder of Magic Breakfast, told Danyl, "A hungry child cannot concentrate. If they can't learn, they can't succeed. Without the players we wouldn't be able to feed the children that we're feeding right now."
