Proudfoot supermarkets support seven local causes

Seven good causes in the Scarborough area have received charitable donations from Proudfoot supermarkets this month towards the respective services they provide to the community.

The family-run supermarket group supported the local groups and charities with donations totaling £1,750 through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity, which raises funds from the sale of Heritage own label products and branded items featured on the Proudfoot promotional leaflet, in addition to funds raised via the four supermarkets’ in-store collecting tins.

We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support so many local causes.

The causes to benefit from donations were Springhead School, Support for Carers Scarborough, The Boys’ Brigade – 2nd Scarborough Company, The Wave Project, Scarborough and District Council, RNIB and 15th Scarborough Guides.

On behalf of the Boys’ Brigade – 2nd Scarborough Company, Chris Bairstow, Company Captain said: “We intend to use the donation to purchase craft and cooking materials for use by all of our age groups, particularly in the run up to Christmas when there are so many things they can make, but which have previously been out of our price range.

“We run age groups for Anchor Boys (5-8), Junior Section (8-11), Company Section (11-15) and Seniors (15-18). The members pay £1 per session and any additional expenditure is raised through regular fundraising events such as jumble sales, coffee mornings etc. The donation from the Proudfoot Group will make a huge difference to what we can provide for our Boys.”

Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support so many local causes and hope they will be able to make good use of the extra funds.

“We would like to thank our customers for their continued support, through the in-store collecting tins and purchases of selected products in our stores; as without their support these community donations would not be possible.”
