After five years of supporting HeroRats, it was time for a change (no worries, the heroic rodents will continue to be supported, but privately). Our new charity of choice is

Magic Breakfast!

They deliver free, healthy breakfast foods to UK primary schools with more than 50% free school meals. In each one of those schools, children start the day too hungry to learn, and a hungry child is often unable to concentrate in class. Magic Breakfast provides a healthy breakfast to 6,000 children each morning, as essential fuel for learning. This improves child attendance, punctuality, concentration and behaviour. All for just 22p a day.

I’ve been involved with social work for a long time, and used to work in an institution for male teenagers with “behavioural issues”. I met 15 years olds who never had a decent breakfast in their lives. Every child fed by Magic Breakfast is a child who gets a chance – to learn, to grow, to thrive, to dream. And for every child who has that chance, there’s one teenager less who hasn’t.

Thanks to the generosity of Damian’s fans, we already managed to drum up £ 220 for Magic Breakfast.

The next target is £ 500; if you’d like to help us getting there, you can learn more and donate by clicking on the button below:

Usual disclaimer: this is the charity of choice of the Webgnome running this site.

In completely different news: the sidebar of the blog has been changed; I hope it’s less cluttered and easier to navigate now. It should make browsing on mobile devices easier.
