Charity, Magic Breakfast, held a fundraising event, Magic Dinner, in June at Hoi Polloi in Shoreditch, East London, and invited Ascot based company, Knowles & Associates, in recognition of the company’s support.

Magic Breakfast delivers free, nutritious breakfasts to school children in deprived areas of London who would otherwise be too hungry to learn. A fervent supporter of Magic Breakfast for nearly two years, leading London basement construction firm, Knowles & Associates, has contributed almost £10,000, to date.

“We are thrilled to know that our contributions have provided over 40,000 breakfasts to more than 200 school children in London, but there is still more work to be done,” says Michelle Knowles, Company Director of basement construction company, Knowles & Associates. “With over 500,000 children still arriving at school too hungry to learn, Knowles will continue to support the Magic Breakfast charity in solving the problem of UK child hunger in the mornings.”

The inaugural fundraising Magic Dinner event was hosted by Laura Jackson and Alice Levine, of theJackson&Levine Supper Club and featured a six course meal prepared by seven of London's most talented chefs: Braden Charlesworth (Hoi Polloi), Isaac McHale (The Clove Club), James Lowe (Lyle's), Nuno Mendes (Taberna do Mercado), Lee Westcott (Typing Room) and Andy Oliver and Mark Dobbie (Som Saa).

“The Magic Dinner provided a great opportunity to get together and help to make UK child hunger in the mornings a thing of the past,” says Michelle Knowles.

Alongside an exciting menu, the Magic Dinner event included cocktails, entertainment, a raffle and a live auction.

'Magic Breakfast would like to thank Knowles & Associates for their kind support that provides 27,272 healthy breakfasts a year,” adds Mim McCulloch, Supporter Relationship Manager at Magic Breakfast. “Each breakfast provides a hungry child with the best start to their school day as fuel for learning, maybe some will become the best architects and engineers of the future!'

Magic Breakfast supports 443 schools where over 35 percent of pupils are eligible for free school meals, feeding more than 17,500 children who arrive too hungry to learn each morning. There are still 300 schools on the charity’s waiting list, with over half a million children in the UK going to school hungry every day. Eating a healthy breakfast helps with concentration, behaviour, attendance and attainment and it costs just 22p to give a child a Magic Breakfast. To find out more, visit www.magicbreakfast.com/.
