College students completing their mock GCSE exams have been given a healthy breakfast in a bid to set them up for success.
The pupils at Witchford Village College will receive the health boost for a two-week period as they prepare themselves for their crucial exams.
Waitrose in Ely backed the college’s initiative to encourage students to enjoy fruit, yoghurts, low-sugar fruit juices, low-fat croissants and cereal bars.
Debbie Walker, head of community liaison at the supermarket arrived at the school laden with boxes of food donated by the store.
Paul Baynes, vice-principal and leader of the initiative, said: “We are very grateful to Waitrose for supporting our Year 11 students.
