Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Andros Townsend and Harry Kane are among the England Football stars urging people to host a ‘Bumble’s Big Breakfast’ this summer, in aid of Honeypot Children’s Charity. The charity says the money raised from this campaign will allow them to begin offering support to Young Carers in Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.

The charity are hoping to be able to significantly expand their services – offering outreach support and respite to Young Carers aged 5 to 12 years old – by building a second respite centre. In order to do so, they need to raise almost £900,000 and are asking members of the community to get behind their breakfast campaign so that children in these areas can get the support they so desperately need.

Simmi Woodwal, Honeypot CEO, said: “The idea behind Bumble’s Big Breakfast couldn’t be more simple. Whether it’s in the office with colleagues, or at home with friends and family, we’re hoping that lots of people will host a breakfast and fundraise for Honeypot. From raffles to fundraising games, there’s lots of ways to get involved”.

Brothers Ethan, Kaleb, Linkin and Riley Walls are all supported by Honeypot Children’s Charity, and got to spend some time having a Bumble’s Big Breakfast with their heroes.

James Milner, England Midfileder, said: “It’s been great meeting the boys today; we’ve heard about the difference that Honeypot makes to their lives, and it’s really inspired us to get as many people hosting a breakfast as we can!”

Harry Kane, England Forward, said: “ When we heard some of the Honeypot children’s stories, the squad felt it was very important to help the charity reach more families who need support. We know there are lots of children across the country who desperately need some respite, we’re hoping that Bumble’s Big Breakfast will not only help to raise some money, but also spread the word about Honeypot”.

Linkin, aged 7, said: “It’s amazing that the England team are supporting Honeypot!”
