The sale of reusable carrier bags in Nisa’s Proudfoot Group stores has raised £2,500 for charity.
The funds were raised by customers purchasing reusable shopping bags in Proudfoot’s four supermarkets, based in Newby, Eastfield, Seamer and Manham Hill, over the last three months.
The latest £2,500 was donated to Saint Catherine’s hospice to help fund patient care.

Communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, Susan Stephenson said: “We are delighted to receive this donation and wish to thank everyone at Proudfoot for their ongoing support.
“This is an amazing amount to raise through the sale of carrier bags and the money will be used to help provide the patient care, both in people’s own homes and in the hospice itself. Thank you for helping us to make a big difference!”
The group has been raising money for local good causes via the sale of reusable bags since 2015, and has now donated more than £80,000.
In addition, Proudfoot stores have supported over 200 local causes with more than £150,000 in donations raised through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity to date.
