Proudfoot Group Making a Difference for two more local causes

Published on 26 January 2016

Scarborough-based independent retailer The Proudfoot Group have supported a further two local causes with donations through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity. The independent retail group donated £250 to 49th Scarborough (Eastfield) Scout Group and a further £500 to FirstLight Trust.

The Scout group will be using their donation towards a security gate for their headquarters on Loders Green. The group has been operating from the building for just over 42 years and have around 90 children involved, including a Beaver Colony run at Hinderwell Community Primary School.

Linda Pennock, fundraiser for the 49th Scarborough (Eastfield) Scout Group commented: “We really appreciate the help the Proudfoot Group gives to our local Scout group as we have our own building which we need to raise funds for to maintain and keep up to date, as well as raising funds to enable our children to do many activities.”

FirstLight Trust supports military veterans by giving physical and psychological aid to enable them to integrate more easily to the local community. The Trust are in the process of opening a second centre in Scarborough which is to include a café, and the donation received from the Proudfoot Group will be used to buy kitchen equipment to help veterans learn barista and baking skills.

A spokesperson for the FirstLight Trust said: “We are currently expanding our operations to provide more support and deliver skills training. The donation from Making a Difference Locally comes at the right time to really help with the final equipment costs for the new premises, which will make a tremendous difference to the work we do.”

The Proudfoot Group donated a total of £4,800 to good causes in 2015 through Making a Difference Locally.
