Proudfoot Supermarkets Support Thrive Alive

Proudfoot Supermarkets Support Thrive Alive

Local charity Thrive Alive have received a charitable donation from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to enable them to purchase much needed equipment required to run their ‘Education on the Edge’ programme.

Thrive Alive is a recently established registered charity (1177253) run by local professionals that aims to support children who are struggling in school. They have developed several programmes that explore with children through outdoor play how they are feeling and to develop positive strategies to help them remain in mainstream school. Thrive Alive have a heart for working with children whose circumstances have found them on the edge of disruption and need a service that can be flexible and bespoke to support their individual needs.

The family-run Proudfoot supermarket group supported the 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.

Tim Harvey, Charity Lead for Thrive Alive, said of the donation: “As a small, local charity securing any funding is always a challenge. We pride ourselves on being local and focusing on our local area.”

Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support Thrive Alive.

“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.”
