The Big Scottish Breakfast

3rd - 7th October 2022

Taking place Monday 3rd - Friday 7th October across Scotland!

For one morning this year, we invite you and your friends, families, colleagues and classmates to have breakfast together. It really is as simple as that!

260,000 children are currently living in poverty in Scotland. That’s one child in four who is missing out on simple things that we all take for granted – like having breakfast. STV Children’s Appeal has set up the Big Scottish Breakfast to help Scottish children get a good start to the day and the best start in life.

So, take part in this year’s Big Scottish Breakfast to raise money for children living in poverty across Scotland by bringing folk from your community together to share a meal.

We want to see all your Big Scottish Breakfasts! Our hashtag is #BigScottishBreakfast – make sure you use it in all your lovely pictures and videos as we will be reposting the best ones. You can tag us @STVAppeal on Twitter and @stvchildrensappeal on Instagram.

Please download our fundraising pack – scroll down, you’ll see it below! It contains all the information you need to host your very own Big Scottish Breakfast. The pack contains themes and ideas for all the inspo you need, information on how the money is spent and those all-important sponsor forms to get you started.

We can’t wait to see how you get on! Remember, you can contact us at with any enquiries.
