Tasty event served up a £150 total for charity

A fundraising breakfast in aid of the Children’s Hospice South West was a sizzling success, raising £150.

Staged at Colyford Memorial Hall as part of the nationwide ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up’ Breakfast Week (January 25 to 31) it attracted a big turnout of hungry diners.

All the food for the breakfast was a locally sourced with bacon supplied by Denhay Farms, in Bridport, sausages coming from the Colyford Butchers and black pudding, tomatoes and mushrooms being donated by the Colyford Post Office and Stores.

Simon Card, chairman of the Trustees of Colyford Memorial Hall, said he was delighted with the way the breakfast had gone. “This was a great community event and I would like to thank all the helpers who put in such a great effort to prepare the breakfasts, particularly Helen Maynard who planned it all and sourced all the provisions,” he said.

“The added ingredient we offered was haggis, Sunday night being Burns Night, and we were surprised how many of our paying guests took up our offer!”

The Shake Up Your Wake Up campaign aims to showcase the most important meal of the day to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast, encouraging people to enjoy a healthy start to their day. Breakfast Week, which takes place every January, offers a perfect opportunity to promote the wealth of wonderful breakfast produce on offer around the UK.
