Breakfast is the best meal of the day at a Whittlesey primary school where parent volunteers are needed to help run a free club.

New Road school is being funded to provide free breakfasts for at least two years thanks to the Greggs bakery charity foundation.

And the club has already gone down a storm - at its official launch one nine year old boy said: “I love breakfast because it wakes up my brain!”

The school has run a breakfast club for some time but now, thanks to Greggs, all children at school can enjoy free food providing there are enough parent volunteers to help man it.

Sally Gaskin said it took about 18 months to get the funding in place.
