Square delight at store’s donation
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.
