The winner of Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep in Falkirk has raised an amazing £732.20 for a local foodbank, while picking up over £360 in Aldi favourites for herself.
After a year hiatus, Aldi’s hugely popular Supermarket Sweep returned to Scotland and lucky shopper Josie Shirra, who was chosen as the winner of an in-store competition, took part in the five-minute trolley dash for charity on Wednesday 4th August.
As well as taking home a trolley full of goodies, Josie 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 foodbank, Falkirk Foodbank.
Aldi Supermarket Sweep winner, Josie Shirra, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the staff in my local Aldi for being so supportive on the night and for giving me the opportunity to do something positive for Falkirk Foodbank and the community after a very tough year.”
Alastair Blackstock, Chairman, Falkirk Foodbank, said: “Josie did very well under the pressure by raising such a wonderful total. It was a really fun evening. On behalf of Falkirk Foodbank, I’d like to say a great big thank you for organising this and thinking of us at this time.”
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 Josie who managed to raise an incredible £732.20 for Falkirk Foodbank 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.
