The Scarborough News - - SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT: GEORGE PINDAR SCHOOL -

Scar­bor­ough-based Proud­foot su­per­mar­kets are sup­port­ing Res­i­dents and Friends of Trafal­gar Square this month with a do­na­tion of £250.

The do­na­tion, made through Nisa’s Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence Lo­cally char­ity, will be used to­wards new plants for the area and for the group’s an­nual Christ­mas tree. Res­i­dents and Friends of Trafal­gar Square (RAFTS) is a vol­un­teer-run group which was formed in 2005 to re­vive the Trafal­gar Square area of Scar­bor­ough, bring the com­mu­nity to­gether and make the area and sur­round­ings a better place to live and visit. Head gar­den­ers Shirley Carey and Mar­garet Thomp­son, on be­half of RAFTS, said: “We are very grate­ful for the do­na­tion; we are plan­ning on buy­ing peren­nial plants so we can have more colour this time of year, and also re­plac­ing old bushes. We would also like to save part of the money for our Christ­mas tree, as our group pay for one ev­ery year.” Since the for­ma­tion of Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence Lo­cally in 2008, Proud­foot have do­nated around £40,000 to over 100 lo­cal causes.
