Aldi is calling on streets across the UK to enter a competition to win funding for the ultimate Jubilee bash.
The supermarket’s Jubilee Street Party Fund will see it give away a series of £500 Aldi vouchers to help communities up and down the country celebrate Her Majesty’s big day.
Aldi is to work with an African cashew nut company Cashew Coast to empower female factory workers and farmer communities in the Ivory Coast, as well as encourage more environmentally friendly nut production.
