We were delighted to receive this special thank you (pictured above) from the pupils who attend Dunbar Primary School breakfast club!
It’s been our pleasure to sponsor the ‘Breakfast Bunch’ club from its creation in December last year. The club has been running every school day morning since, at both the John Muir and Lochend campuses. The service ensures that pupils have the opportunity for a healthy start to the day, as well as helping local working parents by offering wrap-around childcare.
Despite the obvious demand for the breakfast club and strong support from school staff, the breakfast club almost didn’t happen. The school found setting up the sessions challenging as they failed to meet criteria from available funding sources.
Rather than admit defeat though, the school turned to the local community for help – and that’s when we stepped in. As local residents and a family business, we felt that offering sponsorship of the club was a great way to support our community.
Giving something back
Emma Stisi, Director and Client Relationship Manager at Stisi Group, said: “Ross and I are proud to have been the first sponsors of Dunbar Primary School Breakfast Club and to be part of this amazing provision. As working parents ourselves, we understand the importance of this safe and reliable facility. Having a healthy breakfast can provide so many benefits, such as improving mood and boosting concentration throughout their school day.
“When we moved to Dunbar in 2017 our son was made to feel so welcome by the teachers, parents and pupils at Dunbar Primary. We are so grateful for that support and kindness and we love that we can show our thanks by giving something back. We would urge other local businesses to consider how they could support our local schools.”
The school is now looking for a sponsor for next term – contact the school if that could be you!
