Borderland is helping four local schools with their Breakfast Clubs and so far, Meadows Primary has received one donation of £200, Gobowen two donations totalling £500, St Martins two donations totalling £500, Holy Trinity two donations totalling £500 and Woodside one donation of £300.

Justin and Sherie Soper were instrumental in this project for Borderland and Justin said, “This money, a total of £2,000, was in part, raised in partnership with Morrison’s Community Champions who helped arrange a ‘Shredder Event’ at Morrisons Store in Oswestry where EvaStore Document Management kindly provided their Shedding Truck, free of change, to shred unwanted documents for the public in return for small donations. Morrisons then enabled us to raise further funds with our ‘Christmas Tree of Wishes’ in their store in December. I’d also like to thank AICO who donated £300 to boost the Breakfast Club funds and Borderland Rotary for rounding up the money so that we could help with this much needed initiative. I hope we can launch other fundraisers and continue this support throughout the year and, if anybody out there would like to help us with these events, please get in touch”.

Claire Bennett, Headteacher at Woodside Primary School said, “We are so grateful to Justin, Sherie and Borderland Rotary Club for their generous donation of £300 for our Breakfast Club. To ensure as many children as possible benefit from this money, we are going to invest in some games and activities that children can play whilst attending our Breakfast Club. As well as ensuring children have a breakfast before they start the school day, we can further enhance their social and emotional wellbeing, giving them the best possible start to the school day.”
