Cayton Cricket Club MADL Donation

Proudfoot Support Cayton Cricket Club

Cayton Cricket Club has received a £250 charitable donation from Proudfoot supermarkets this month.

Cayton Cricket Club are hoping to buy a new ‘super soaker’ with their donation - a piece of equipment similar to a giant rolling sponge - that soaks up water from the cricket pitch, enabling more cricket to be played following wet weather.

Claire Woodhead-Crowe, secretary of Cayton Cricket Club, said: “With the donation we are hoping to either place an order for a super soaker, which takes water from the wicket enabling more games to be played; or put it towards an electronic scoreboard which we have just started fundraising for, which will enable us to keep up with the modernisation of cricket.”

The family-run supermarket group Proudfoot supported this local cause with a donation of £250 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.

Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support Cayton Cricket Club. It's an honor and a privilege to help and support this worthy cause in our community.

“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.”
