More than 100 children attend our breakfast club each morning. The club provides healthy and nutritious breakfasts free of charge, courtesy of the The Huddersfield Town Foundation.
Club Ambassador, Andy Booth, and the Foundation’s corporate fundraising officer, Mandy Taylor, often pop in to see us - together with sponsors from local businesses and Huddersfield Town players.
The breakfast club has had a huge impact on the attendance and punctuality of many children.
We are extremely grateful to Huddersfield Town Chairman, Dean Hoyle, and all the partners, sponsors and parent volunteers.
We employed a Breakfast Club Coordinator, Claire Swannick, who organises the day-to-day management. Parent volunteers and staff members also help run the club. What superstars they are!
The Huddersfield Town Foundation has teamed up with Goals 4 Hearts to place life-saving defibrillators into 18 Breakfast Club schools, Dalton is one of these fortunate schools. This initiative was funded by the money raised in an event called Pedal for Pounds 9 ride where 175 cyclists travelled 282-miles from France to Huddersfield. Mrs Mallinson and Mrs Valentine attended a training session, together with 45 staff from other schools, at the John Smith’s Stadium, where they were shown how and when to use it. We now have our own defibrillator in school.
