A SUBSTANTIAL donation of $4000 was recently received from Twin Towns Services Club towards Twin Towns Evening VIEW Club's breakfast program, started in October 2013.

VIEW club zone councillor Rosie McDermott said these funds might allow volunteers to provide breakfast two days a week instead of one.

"We provide the children with a choice of juice or Milo, or both," she said.

"Also toast and fruit. We were going to include cereal, but the teachers have pointed out that this would be messy.

"However some kids love Weet-bix with butter and vegemite. We also provide cups, plates, jam, honey and, of course, brekkie wouldn't be brekkie without Vegemite.

"We see approximately 65 to 70 children. Sometimes some will slip through who have had breakfast, but no child is turned away."
