The winner of Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep in Glasgow has raised an amazing £917.62 for a local foodbank, while picking up over £450 in Aldi favourites for himself.
After a year hiatus, Aldi’s hugely popular Supermarket Sweep returned to Scotland and lucky shopper Richard Sloan, who was chosen as the winner of an in-store competition, took part in the five-minute trolley dash for charity on Monday 19th July.
As well as taking home a trolley full of goodies, Richard successfully found the three Scottish products on his shopping list so Aldi doubled the total value of his haul and donated the lump sum to his nominated foodbank, East Renfrewshire Larder.
Aldi Supermarket Sweep winner, Richard Sloan, said: “This was such a fantastic experience, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I know that foodbanks are struggling at the moment, so at a time when they are more important than ever, I am grateful to have the chance to give something back to them. I’d like to thank the team at Aldi for running the event and also the team at Shettleston who were really helpful on the night.”
Jennifer Lawrie and Rachel Egglestone, Co-Founders of East Renfrewshire Larder, said: “We are thrilled that Richard chose East Renfrewshire Larder as the recipient of his trolley dash win and also the generosity of Aldi in doubling his win. We will be able to help so many families in need.”
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 Richard who managed to raise an incredible £917.62 for East Renfrewshire Larder and take home a trolley full of Aldi goodies for himself.”
The Supermarket Sweep was run in line with current COVID-19 guidelines and all safety precautions, including social distancing, were adhered to.
