Magic Breakfast

As you may be aware, each year we select a charity to support with the aim of creating awareness and fundraising for them. The charity is carefully selected by the team and needs to be a cause that is close to our hearts. What is most important to us is that we know where the money we raise is going and how it is being used.

So, without further ado, we are really pleased to announce that our official Charity of the Year for 2022 is Magic Breakfast.

A couple of years ago, just before the start of the pandemic, we began fundraising for them alongside the fantastic Full Circle Fund Therapies charity, but all events were obviously cancelled, and our fundraising was put on hold. We are therefore looking forward to what we can achieve with them this year. Our target for the year is to raise at least £5,000 for the charity.

If you’ve not heard about Magic Breakfast, they are an amazing charity that ensures no child (in their 1000+ partner schools) is too hungry to learn. They provide a healthy and nutritious breakfast to over 200,000 children each school day. The impact of the breakfasts on a child’s ability to concentrate and learn during their school day is not only immediate but can affect their whole life path. You can learn more about Magic Breakfast here and read a copy of their 2021 impact report here.

FUNDRAISING 2022

We will be kicking off our fundraising this year with a Carrington Big Breakfast in conjunction with Magic Breakfast’s Great Big Breakfast (read more about it here). On Monday, 28th February we will be having a big breakfast in the office, providing the team with a nutritious and delicious breakfast in return for a donation. If you would like to join us in throwing together a tip-top breakfast and making a donation, that would be wonderful. Every 34p donated pays for a child’s breakfast – that’s almost two weeks of school breakfasts for as little as £3!

To inspire you, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite, mouth-watering breakfast recipes and ideas. We will share some photographs on our donation page and look forward to seeing your breakfast creations too.
