Proudfoot Support Scarborough Amicable Society

Scarborough Amicable Society have received a charitable donation from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to go towards school uniforms for local children.

The family-run 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 and Co-op own label products, in addition to funds raised via the four supermarkets’ in-store collecting tins.

The aim of Scarborough Amicable Society is to provide clothing and ancillary assistance to  children in need, in the area covered by the former Scarborough Divisional Executive and normally attending publicly maintained schools in the area. The donation will allow the Society to support a number of local families with donations, aid over the festive period and more.

Society President David Sutcliffe said: “The donation will support our 14 families who receive donations twice yearly, alongside Christmas hampers and the casual applications we receive for support, which can range between £60 and £250.”

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 Amicable Society.

“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.”
