Proudfoot Support Scarborough Ladies FC

Scarborough Ladies FC have received a charitable donation from Proudfoot supermarkets this month, to help with training local parents to become football coaches for the club.

Scarborough Ladies FC currently have over 130 girls registered with the club, with ages ranging from 4 – 18 years old. They have seven teams playing in the City of York Girls Football League and an Under 18s team who currently sit at the top of the Yorkshire U18 Girls Football League.

The donation will fund putting three parents through their FA Level 1 coaching course, so that U12s, U13s and U14s all have two fully qualified coaches, ensuring adequate coaching cover at all times.

A spokesperson for Scarborough Ladies FC said: “Scarborough Ladies FC are so grateful to The Proudfoot Group and Making a Difference Locally for their continued support. Their generous donation will enable the club to continue to offer sporting opportunities to girls of all ages and abilities from across the Borough of Scarborough, and will ensure that the volunteers are fully qualified to coach and to administer first aid, in accordance with the club’s ethos to provide a safe and welcoming environment in which to play sport.”

The family-run supermarket group supported the local cause with a donation of £500 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 Scarborough Ladies FC.

“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.”
