Weatherman Sean to visit for breakfast date
Pupils at Fallin Primary are to receive a speical visit from telly weatherman Sean Batty after a charity breakfast was binned because pupils were to be served with rolls and square sausage.
The Observer reported on Wednesday that the Big Scottish Breakfast event scheduled at the school was to be staged in aid of the STV Children’s Appeal but was called off over the breakfast favourite.
Stirling Council insisted that it is“committed to improving the health and wellbeing”of pupils, including ensuring that school meals comply with nutritional requirements.
A spokesman added:“To ensure these guidelines were followed the school postponed the breakfast event and the children are looking forward to fundraising for a good cause at a future date, which will be communicated to parents.”
One parent, who did not want to be named, said: “Honest to God, it’s not like it’s a plate of sugar. I think this is awful.
“They’re trying to help raise money for a worthy cause and they stop that. Stirling Council disgust me.”
Now the popular weatherman has vowed to attend the rescheduled brekkie event.
A spokesperson for the STV Children’s Appeal said:“The Big Scottish Breakfast was a huge success, with fundraising events held across Scotland last week contributing to over £2.5m being raised.
“Sean has offered to join a rescheduled Big Scottish Breakfast event at Fallin Primary School, with all funds raised helping to support children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.”
