Proudfoot Donate £500 To Irish Dancing School

Kevin O’Connor’s Irish School of Dance has received a charitable donation of £500 from Proudfoot supermarkets this month to help them to replace their outdated sound system.

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.

Kevin O’Connor’s Irish School of Dance will be holding their 30th anniversary show on 25th October at the YMCA in Scarborough. The group comprises approximately 50 dancers and new members are always welcome of any gender, from 4 years upwards.

Kevin O’Connor, who runs the dance school, said of the donation: “The dance school is run as a hobby and depends upon fund raising and donations each year. We are a small dance school so raising funds for dresses, theatre and competition fees and the upkeep of the school can be difficult, so thank you for the nomination.”

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.”
