Challenge 4 Change were one of the organisations that received £100 of Kellogg’s food vouchers at the Tackling Food Poverty event in June.
They decided to give the vouchers to staff and pupils of Stretford High School to use at their breakfast club.
Lindsay Brindley, Associate Head Teacher, Stretford High School commented,
“Some students, for a number of reasons, come to school hungry. To make the most of their education students need to be comfortable and able to concentrate in lessons. A nourishing breakfast sets them up for the hard work we expect them to demonstrate in class. It has a positive impact on concentration, engagement and behaviour. The vouchers will be put to good use.”
Chris Whiteley from Challenge 4 Change said, “It’s great that we can give these vouchers to a local school that will make good use of them. We have a great relationship with Stretford High who have been very innovative at using Challenge 4 Change for the development of their pupils.”
Challenge 4 Change provides training for groups and individuals in a purpose built ‘inward bound’ training centre near MediacityUK. Their courses help with team and personal development focusing on problem solving, communication skills, team working, conflict resolution and anger management as well as increasing self-esteem, confidence and motivation.
