Proudfoot Wetwheels Yorkshire Donation 2023

Making A Difference for Wetwheels Yorkshire

Mars Galaxy Ripple and Proudfoot’s Making A Difference Locally Charity recently collaborated to be stronger together, to help fund a donation to Wetwheels Yorkshire.

Wetwheels Yorkshire, have received a charitable donation of £1,000 from Proudfoot supermarkets, through this collaboration, to help fund and support young people’s access to one of their adventures out to sea.

Peter Richardson on behalf of Wetwheels Yorkshire said:

“Wetwheels provides the opportunity for all disabled people, including those with profound and complex disabilities, to access the sea in a safe, stimulating and rewarding way on board specially-built, fully-accessible powerboats. 

By offering the opportunity to experience this as active participants we build confidence and improve physical and mental wellbeing. 

A donation of £1,000 would enable as many as 60 young people from the Scarborough area to take part in a Wetwheels adventure”

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 our area local area. Working with Mars Galaxy Ripple, these additional funds were made available to continue the valuable work Wetwheels Yorkshire do, in ensuring access for all, including the sea and our wonderful coastline.

“We would like to thank Mars Galaxy Ripple for their offer of additional funding and our customers for their continued support, through the in-store collecting tins and purchases of Co-op products in our stores; as without their support these community donations would not be possible.”
