Breakfast Club Volunteer

  • VO70716


Description

The Machan Trust delivers breakfast clubs in four primary schools within the Larkhall area, providing over 500 breakfasts per week on average. We would be unable to provide this service without our fantastic team of committed volunteers, which we are always looking to expand. Volunteers provide support to the lead worker by helping with setting up and clearing up, making toast, pouring cereal and drinks, washing and drying dishes, engaging the children in a variety of enjoyable activities, and providing homework support. Breakfast clubs have been shown to benefit children by providing the opportunity to eat a healthy breakfast, develop social skills, play with friends, and prepare for their day at school. The support of breakfast club volunteers is vital in helping the Machan Trust to fulfil its vision of improving the life chances of children and young people in Larkhall and the surrounding areas,
