MADL Donation Springhead School

Proudfoot Donate To Springhead School Music Project

Springhead School Scarborough has received a charitable donation from Proudfoot supermarkets this month towards developing music stimulation.

The family-run supermarket group supported the local charity with a donations of £250 through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity, which raises funds from the sale of Heritage own label products and branded items featured on the Proudfoot promotional leaflet, in addition to funds raised via the four supermarkets’ in-store collecting tins.

Springhead School is an all-age special school for over 70 Children with severe and profound learning difficulties.  The school is rated outstanding by Ofsted.

Pupils have a range of learning difficulties, and associated physical, medical and sensory disabilities such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and sensory processing issues.

Headteacher Debbie Wilson commented, “The pupils in Rainbow Class love their Monday morning sessions with Angela the Music Therapist. They all respond with enthusiasm as they anticipate their turn. Although a range of instruments are explored, they all particularly show enjoyment of the familiar tunes that Angela sings and plays on her guitar. All the children derive so much pleasure from music and singing.”

Valerie Aston, director at the Proudfoot Group, added: “We are delighted to be able to use our Making a Difference Locally funds to support the pupils of Springhead school continue their enjoyment of music.”

“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.”
