The winner of Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep in Elgin has raised an amazing £824.02 for a local foodbank, while picking up over £400 in Aldi favourites for herself.  

After a year hiatus, Aldi’s hugely popular Supermarket Sweep returned to Scotland and lucky shopper Michaela Hunt, who was chosen as the winner of an in-store competition, took part in the five-minute trolley dash for charity on Monday 12th July.  

As well as taking home a trolley full of goodies, Michaela successfully found the three Scottish products on her shopping list so Aldi doubled the total value of her haul and donated the lump sum to her nominated charity, Moray Foodplus.  

Aldi Supermarket Sweep winner, Michaela Hunt, said: “‘I’m so pleased to have raised some money for the food bank. I had a great time and managed to get lots of food which I’ll be using to prepare some meals for the freezer for us to have when our first baby arrives in a few weeks. Thank you to all the staff at Aldi who helped on the night!” 

Mairi McAllum, Project Manager at Moray Foodplus, said: “Thank you to Aldi for supporting us through such a fun initiative. Congratulations to the supermarket sweep winner who raised a fantastic amount which will help us in the work we do across Moray.” 

Richard Holloway, Regional Managing Director for Scotland, said: “The Aldi Supermarket Sweep is a firm favourite across the country, and we are so pleased to be able to bring it back after a year hiatus. Congratulations to Michaela who managed to raise an incredible £824.02 for Moray Foodplus and take home a trolley full of Aldi goodies for herself.” 

The Supermarket Sweep was run in line with current COVID-19 guidelines and all safety precautions, including social distancing, were adhered to.
