Bolton Wanderers get in the Brekkie spirit for Winston's Wish

9 February 2015

Club shows support for the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK, Winston's Wish

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to support Winston’s Wish, the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK, during their week of its fundraising campaign the Great British Brekkie. 

Winston’s Wish is calling out across the country for families, friends, colleagues and classmates to join them and help raise £50,000 to support bereaved children by hosting a charity breakfast.

Winston’s Wish is the club’s Charity of the Year and star names such as Barry Bannan and Dorian Dervite have joined in the Brekkie fun, encouraging sign-ups to take part in the Great British Brekkie.

Dervite said: “On behalf of the lads and Bolton Wanderers, we’re more than happy to show our support for Winston’s Wish and the great work they do in helping to support families affected by childhood bereavement.”

Reviving the often forgotten breakfast tradition serves as a reminder that breakfast is an important meal helping everyone, including children, to have a more positive and proactive day. A nutritious and balanced breakfast provides the energy needed to embrace the morning by refuelling the body and brain and kick-starting the metabolism.

Raising a toast to the Great British Brekkie, Kathryn Leverett, Chief ‘Brekker’, said: “This is now our third Winston’s Wish Great British Brekkie and the campaign grows and gets more exciting every year! Every single penny counts and the money raised will make a life-changing difference to bereaved children, young people and their families”.

A glittering list of celebrities is also backing the campaign; some of the egg-xtraordinary star supporters enlisted so far include Dame Judi Dench, Sol Campbell, Ruby Wax, Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Rachel Khoo, Jenny Eclair and Chris Ramsey.
