It was raining cornflakes at St Matthew’s Primary School when a lorry packed with 420 boxes of cereal arrived.

The delivery was made through the Ipswich-based Families In Need’s foodbank after they signed up to a Kellogg’s scheme to support schools. Headteacher Sue Todd said pupils and staff were only expecting ‘variety’ packs not full 500g boxes. “We did not quite believe it, suddenly we were getting massive boxes of cereal, we thought they would be the variety type so when the truck arrived with the full boxes it was quite special,” she said.

Maureen Reynel, founder of Families in Need, said she hoped the cereal would boost children’s learning.
