Alan is an ordinary person doing extraordinary things. As an outstanding, energetic and passionate Trustee of Magic Breakfast, Alan leads the fight against child hunger by setting up school breakfast clubs that feed over 6,000 hungry children every morning in 210 primary schools in Britain's most deprived communities.
Bagels, cereal, porridge and juice give the UK's hungriest, poorest children aged 5-11 fuel for learning, boosting their concentration in class, attendance at school, and success in exams.
Having suffered from child hunger himself, Alan has led the campaign amongst media, business and policymakers to raise awareness of child hunger and poverty, and calling for action.
Alan shows immense commitment to the cause by personally sponsoring the breakfast club at his local primary school where he is a governor. He has secured thousands of pounds of funding from corporate supporters, and led Magic Breakfast to success as a recent winner of the Prime Minister's Big Society Award for outstanding social enterprises. Alan is also designing and launching 'Magic Porridge', a new social enterprise serving porridge to the workplace to raise funds to feed hungry children.
Alan has gone the extra mile. His work allows an entire generation of children to make the most of their education and be the Olympians of the future. Alan's story is powerful, personal and inspiring, and he would carry the Olympic Flame with pride.
