dsc02091Team members had an early start this morning to show our appreciation to the Proudfoot Group.

From 5th October 2015 larger shops in England had to charge 5p for a single use carrier bag. Proudfoot, although employing less than 250 staff, also decided to charge for their carrier bags to promote this environmental scheme.

Over the next 12 months Proudfoot have been kind enough to donate the proceeds from the sales of all single use carrier bags to Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue.

We particularly like the information board installed at the checkouts in the Newby store advertising this generosity.

A big thank you from the whole team to at the Proudfood Group.
