Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but a survey commissioned by Carers Trust shows that 56% of Britons who have a weekday breakfast spend 10 minutes or less preparing and eating the meal, and two in ten (19%) men and 11% of women skip breakfast altogether during the week.

Of those who eat breakfast on a weekend, 10 minutes or less is the time taken by more than one in three (39%) of those surveyed.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives us fuel and energy to help us get through the day. We know that many carers skip breakfast because they simply don’t have time to prepare or eat it.  We probably all know a carer. It could be your elderly neighbour caring for his wife, the mum across the road caring for her disabled daughter or the boy in your son’s class who cares for his mum who has cancer. Carers come from all walks of life.

Please help us help them by getting involved with our campaign.  You are more than welcome to join us between 9.30am – midday on Wednesday 16th September 2015 and bring friends and family to help us raise funds for resources for and awareness around unpaid carers in Sefton. We’ll provide the breakfast and a friendly welcome if you give us your support (and maybe a small donation)
