Advocacy Alliance Donation £250

£250 Donation To Advocacy Alliance

Advocacy Alliance Scarborough have received a charitable donation of £250 from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to help them to continue work with vulnerable people to make them aware of how they can keep themselves safe.

The family-run Proudfoot supermarket group supported the group through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) 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.

Advocacy Alliance is a voluntary organisation, established in 1990 to provide free, independent and confidential advocacy to empower individuals and enable them to have their voice heard. It involves a small team of staff who manage and develop advocacy throughout the area. The team is made up of paid staff, volunteers and trustees. They are based in Scarborough but cover a wide area across North Yorkshire including Filey, Whitby and Ryedale, and are open Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Helen Beevers, Chief Executive of Advocacy Alliance, said of the donation: “It will help us continue delivering our training to this group, helping them learn about hate and mate crime – issues which are on the increase in our area. The donation will also help to pay for room hire, travel, staff time and training resources.”

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

“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.”
