Break­fast for a cause

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS - BEN WATER­WORTH

HUN­GRY din­ers can sat­isfy their break­fast crav­ings this morn­ing while also help­ing sup­port young peo­ple in the Der­went Val­ley.

The an­nual “Bea­con and Egg Break­fast” is on again to­day at McDon­ald’s, with $1 from ev­ery Egg and Ba­con McMuf­fin sold go­ing to the Bea­con Foun­da­tion’s work pro­vid­ing job op­por­tu­ni­ties for young Tas­ma­ni­ans.

New Nor­folk McDon­ald’s prod­uct qual­ity man­ager Ge­orge Han­lin said that events like this were im­por­tant for the res­tau­rant.

“McDon­ald’s has al­ways been one for help­ing out lo­cals,” he said.

Bea­con Foun­da­tion CEO Scott Harris said the part­ner­ship was cru­cial in help­ing ca­reer de­vel­op­ment for peo­ple in the Val­ley.

“McDon­ald’s and Bea­con share a vi­sion for Aus­tralia where young peo­ple are well equipped to en­ter the work­force and make pos­i­tive choices,” he said.

Sev­eral busi­nesses in the New Nor­folk area have joined in the day by pre-or­der­ing Ba­con and Egg McMuffins to help sup­port the cause.

“Usu­ally they’ll send us an email with or­ders [for the day] and we’ll have them ready for them,” Mr Han­lin said.

The McMuffins will be on sale from 6am to 10.30am.
