Weath­er­man Sean to visit for break­fast date

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
