Councillor Sarah Russell, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills at Derby City Council, has been championing free school breakfast schemes for young people in the city of Derby. This scheme is one of many corporate priorities. As part of her mission to ensure this continues, she forged links with local businesses. She said:
“Breakfast of Champions is an exciting and innovative scheme which will benefit many pupils from schools around Derby. We are all in deep gratitude to Kavita Oberoi who has funded the entire project so young people receive breakfast, regardless of their family income and whether they are eligible for school meals.
“These breakfasts will ensure schoolchildren have the essential nutrients that will keep them going through the day and enable them to concentrate in class and participate in sports’ activities without getting tired or not being well enough to play.”
