Teachers pay for pupils breakfasts after losing funding
Teachers at a school in Bristol are paying for more than 130 breakfast meals for pupils every day after a charity providing funds went bust.
Global Hearts for Children had funded the meals at Knowle DGE school - but now their website reports that they have gone into liquidation.
According to the BBC news website, the school has applied for money from another charity - but in the meantime teachers are paying for the meals.
Joanna Greenwood, who works at the school which specialises in learning difficulties, said the teachers wanted to help.

She said they felt it was important for children to start the day with a meal.
The BBC reports that Global Hearts for Children had provided the breakfast club meals at the school for the past nine years before going into liquidation, and that the school has now applied to a charity called Magic Breakfasts for funding.
