Some of our best supporters are our youngest. So many schoolchildren have been involved in fundraising for us, maybe because they can really appreciate the difference having a healthy school breakfast makes to their school day.

Over the years we’ve seen lots of fabulous fundraising ideas.

Recently pupils at Pelham Primary School in Wimbledon chose Magic Breakfast as their Christmas charity. The children had made some heartfelt videos which were played at the end of their Christmas Performances, they must have been good because the parents and carers dug deep and raised over £1000.

If your school would like to do some fundraising for us, how about a quiz night, a sponsored walk or a fun run? Or perhaps a sponsored silence - the teachers love that one! A recipe book is a creative idea, teachers and pupils provide their favourite recipes which are then collated, printed and sold. What does the Headteacher have for tea?

An option which is always popular with the children is a non-uniform day. Or how about a karaoke competition to see who, in school has the X factor?

Garden House School held an exhibition and quiz night for us one year, with breakfast themed ceramic plates painted by the children on show. The exhibition was a huge success and the parents were incredibly generous.

Cheam School held a 'Dads, Grandpas and Uncles breakfast' which was a great success.

With the current trend for de-cluttering, a bring and buy/car boot sale boot could be a good option. Reuse, recycle and raise money for Magic Breakfast!

If your school would like to do some fundraising for us please contact Sonia in our fundraising team ([email protected]).

However it is done, we’re always delighted to help, and pupils and parents can be sure that the money raised is making a huge difference to the thousands of children who arrive at school too hungry to learn.
