Eagle’s Nest Breakfast Club Soars with Jigsaw Foundation Funding

A Nottinghamshire church has been awarded vital funding from our Jigsaw Foundation to provide help to local children and families throughout the school holidays.

Eagle’s Nest Church received £5,174.71 to help fund a free breakfast club which is held at Killisick Community and Children’s Centre in Arnold, three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 9:30am to 11:30am.)

During all school holidays, a free hot breakfast is provided for children under the age of 11 and their parents/carers, alongside activities for the children, as well as a packed lunch that they can take away with them.

The Breakfast Club also provides the opportunity for parents to connect with other people and be signposted to any help or support they may need, such as debt management, help with application forms and mental health support.

Julie McGlynn, our Neighbourhood Engagement Officer and part of the Jigsaw Foundation team said: “No one is currently providing anything in the area and the cost of living crisis means this project is required now more than ever before.”

If you are or know of a Jigsaw resident  who would benefit from the free breakfast club and support, they can book their place via
