By wearing a poppy, you aren’t just remembering the fallen: you’re supporting a new generation of veterans and Service personnel that need our support."Founding Director Richard Sheppard commented, "The 11th November is a day close to all our hearts and we are proud to support The Poppy Appeal and remember those who have served our country, and those who have lost their lives."
As an accredited Living Wage employer, we are thrilled to welcomes the increase in UK and London rates announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week (November 5th-11th 2017).
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said:
Greggs plc took up the charge and established the first ‘Greggs’ breakfast club. The Greggs Foundation now oversees over 430 clubs, providing a nutritious breakfast to over 26,000 school children each day, over 5 million each year!!!
The Greggs Foundation receives funding from a range of partners, often private sector companies including their major partner, Greggs plc.
Greggs Foundation uses the money to support breakfast clubs through an initial start up grant for equipment such as chest freezers to store food items or toys and activities for the club. They also make a payment each term towards other food items and Greggs plc donates bread from the nearest shop.
This approach tends to be very well received by our breakfast club schools, many of whom have worked in partnership with Greggs for over fifteen years. Schools tell us that they like the flexibility of the model, allowing them to tailor their club to suit the needs of the children that attend.The average club costs just £2,000 to set up and run for a year.
