Proudfoot Support 1st Forge Valley Rangers

1st Forge Valley Rangers Group Scarborough have received a charitable donation of £250 from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to help them to buy new resources.

The family-run Proudfoot supermarket group supported the Ranger 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.

Rangers are the next step on the Guiding program for girls aged 14-18, to encourage them to take the lead and experience new challenges. They meet up regularly, have fun doing activities together and are recognised for their achievements with badges and awards. Rangers offers a range of unique opportunities, following a programme of interest badges, skills builders and awards. Rangers take part in amazing challenges, travel the world and develop skills across their six themes. 

Janet Bell, Leader at 1st Forge Valley Rangers, said: “Thank you so much to Proudfoot for making a donation to the 1st Forge Valley Ranger Group. As we are a new Unit, we will certainly be able to put this funding to good use. 

“The Rangers would like to buy more resources for our new programme and are in desperate need of stationery items and equipment of their own, as at the moment they are borrowing these from the Guides.”

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.”

The 1st Forge Valley Rangers meet each Tuesday during term times at the library in Ayton from 7.15pm to 9pm.
