£2,500 Donation To Dementia Appeal

£2,500 Donation To Hospital Dementia Appeal

Proudfoot supermarkets are supporting the Dementia Appeal at Scarborough Hospital this month with a donation of £2,500, raised solely from the sale of single-use carrier bags.

Proudfoot supermarkets have been raising money for local causes in this way since the introduction of the mandatory 5p carrier bag charge, and have already donated £22,500 from the funds raised to charities in the area.

The donation to the Dementia Appeal will help to provide a better experience for dementia patients at Scarborough Hospital and their families.

Emma George, Assistant Director of Nursing and Dementia Lead Nurse at the Trust commented: “I would like to thank Proudfoot for their continued fantastic support of the Dementia Appeal; the money raised will mean we can make things better for our dementia patients in Scarborough Hospital.

“The clinical team are thrilled to be able to provide activities and items that encourage better communication and maintain independence – improving the experience in hospital for our patients, their families and everyone who visits us.”

Maggie Bulman, Trust & Corporate Fundraiser added: “Proudfoot’s support of the Dementia Appeal and all the money raised through the carrier bags really will make a big difference in Scarborough Hospital, benefitting our patients, their families and friends and our staff. We are grateful to be working with them to raise these vital funds and to raise awareness of the Hospital Charity and the Dementia Appeal in the local community.”
