SCHOOLS in Portsmouth are being urged to apply for a £1,000 grant for breakfast clubs.

Cereal firm Kellogg’s is celebrating 20 years of championing breakfast clubs by offering schools across the city the chance to get a grant.

To mark the anniversary, the cereal giant will be giving a £1,000 grant away every school day of 2018.

The Kellogg’s Breakfast Club programme has already provided 70 million bowls of cereal since 1998, with the firm saying that breakfast clubs also boost student attendance and attainment in class.

Kate Prince, from Kellogg’s, said: ‘We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, so we’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK.

‘The £1,000 we’re offering in 2018 underpins our pride and continuing commitment to our breakfast club programme.’
