Proudfoot supermarkets Make a Difference for West Pier Juniors
One of Scarborough’s grassroots junior football clubs, West Pier Juniors, have received a charitable donation of £500 from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to help fund coach training to FA standards, and to help purchase new balls, bibs and cones for the club.
Scarborough’s family-run Proudfoot supermarket group supported the charity through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity, which raises funds from the sale of Co-op own label products, in addition to funds raised via the four supermarkets’ in-store collecting tins.
Alec Coulson, coach, West Pier Juniors, said on behalf of himself and fellow coach Ben Salt: “This donation really is appreciated by everyone at West Pier Juniors. It will go a long way to helping coaches get qualifications and buy vital equipment.
Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support good causes in the area.
“We would like to thank our customers for their continued support, through the in-store collecting tins and purchases of Co-op products in our stores; as without their support these community donations would not be possible.”
