Hearts duo Mark Ridgers and Denis Prychynenko have joined children at Canal View Primary to celebrate the launch of their breakfast club.

The club, a three-way partnership between the Big Hearts Community Trust, the city council and finance company AEGON, aims to ensure all primary and special school children in Edinburgh have a healthy start to their day.

Susan Wilcock, AEGON head of brand, said: “A nutritious start to the day is proven to improve attention and learning skills and we’re delighted to be in a position to provide that through the breakfast club.”

Education convener Councillor Paul Godzik said: “A nutritious breakfast is vitally important for children and helps them to get the most out of their school day. Breakfast clubs offer a fun and healthy way for kids to start the day and I want to see many more of them throughout Edinburgh.”
