With around 80 to 120 breakfasts being served each time. The Big Breakfast is, for many, one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the year. Giving a chance to experience a wholesome breakfast, whilst enjoying the opportunity to meet and talk in a very relaxed atmosphere. Behind the scenes are a team of willing volunteers. Prepare and cook the food to order. Whilst others serve at tables and attend to the washing up.
No charge is made, with donations being invited.
Attendees at the breakfast range from families with children, to individuals seeking company. With most returning each time the event is held. Last year’s decision to combine the breakfast with the Christmas craft fayre event was well received. Giving the opportunity to combine a filling breakfast with some Christmas present purchases.
This also gives valuable opportunity for those with creative talent. They can showcase their craft and hopefully make some sales. Citycare is particularly pleased to support young parents (mostly Mums) in this way.
