Proudfoot supports Scarborough Concert Band in spreading community spirit

Proudfoot supermarkets are supporting Scarborough Concert Band this month with a donation of £250 to help towards their charitable fundraising efforts.

The Scarborough Concert Band comprises around 40 members of all ages and are celebrating their 50-year anniversary this year. The donation from Proudfoot, made through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity, will enable the band to hold free-to-attend fundraising concerts throughout the year, to help local charities raise much needed funds.

Malcolm Appleby from the Scarborough Concert Band commented: “We were delighted to receive the donation from Proudfoot as it will help towards the costs of building hire and publicity for the events we have planned, in turn helping us to support other local charities and give something back to the Scarborough area.

“The band is all about enjoying music and we’re thrilled to be able to spread this joy throughout the community with our performances.”

Since the formation of Nisa’s charity, Making a Difference Locally in 2008, Proudfoot have donated around £40,000 to over 100 local causes through the charity, ranging from local schools, sports clubs and community groups to charities, hospices and churches.
