We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to players of People’s Postcode Lottery who have surprised Magic Breakfast by
awarding us an extra £25,000 this year. This takes the total award for 2015 to £200,000, which will buy hungry children close
to one million Magic Breakfasts throughout the year!
The extra funding was announced at People’s Postcode Lottery annual Charity Gala, held in the stunning setting of Mansfield Traquair, “Edinburgh’s Sistine Chapel”.
The guest of honour at the Gala was Dame Kelly Holmes and there was a fabulous performance by Sistema Scotland’s Big Noise Orchestra. We like a big noise!
Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People's Postcode Lottery, said, "As the number of players continues to increase, the amounts awarded to charities will only continue to rise. On behalf of all the supported charities, I would like to say a massive thank you to all the players. Your support makes such a difference to so many lives."
Alex Cunningham, Magic Breakfast’s General Manager, said: “People's Postcode Lottery Charity Gala was a fantastic evening. Not only are we grateful for the generosity which will enable us to provide thousands of breakfasts to children, but also for the opportunity to meet and hear from other inspiring charities and to learn from each other. We look forward to another successful year thanks to support from players of People's Postcode Lottery.”
People's Postcode Lottery is a charity lottery operating across the whole of Great Britain. Players have awarded over £58.6 Million to charities and good causes both in Great Britain and internationally. Their award to Magic Breakfast means that we can deliver healthy breakfasts to thousands of hungry school children every day, helping them to concentrate and make the most of their core morning lessons.
