The Breakfast Club gets a new lift
WITH a hearty snap, crackle and chomp, Warwick Central School pupils are feeling an extra morning boost thanks to the generosity of several groups around the city.
The Breakfast Club, which began in 2011, was given its first impetus with the generous gift of $2500 from the Condamine Medical Centre.
"This allowed us to get the concept off the ground, but we needed more guarantee of sustainability," principal Christine Dolley said.
"One of very dedicated and inspiring parents, Jill Neucom, who also arranged the Condamine Medical Centre donation, saw a small ad on the side of a cereal box for schools to become part of the Kellogg's Breakfast Buddies program."
Consequently, in 2012, Central school received 300 bags of Kellogg's cereals including Sultana Bran, Corn Flakes and Rice Bubbles.
Kellogg's has continued to support the worthy cause through 2013 and 2014.
Now the breakfast club has received even more assistance from the Rotary Club of Warwick.
"We are really grateful," Mrs Dolley said.
In their usual charitable fashion the Rotary Club of Warwick has had another busy few months of fundraising.
After an extremely successful movie night last month the club was able to donate around $1000 to ROMAC.
"We had quite a good response with 80 people attending," organiser Yve Stocks said.
