Proudfoot supermarket group has donated £500 to West Pier Juniors, one of Scarborough’s grassroots junior football clubs, to help fund coach training to FA standards, and to help purchase new balls, bibs and cones for the club.
The family business supported the club through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity, which raises funds from the sale of Co-op own label products, in addition to funds raised via the four supermarkets’ in-store collecting tins.
“This donation really is appreciated by everyone at West Pier Juniors. It will go a long way to helping coaches get qualifications and buy vital equipment,” Alec Coulson, coach, West Pier Juniors, said on behalf of himself and fellow coach Ben Salt.
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 Co-op products in our stores; as without their support these community donations would not be possible.”
