The winner of Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep in Haddington has raised £433.74 for a local foodbank while picking up £216.87 in Aldi favourites for herself.  

Aldi’s popular Supermarket Sweep recently arrived in Haddington and lucky shopper Nicola Ewan, who was chosen as the winner of an in-store competition, took part in the five-minute trolley dash for charity on 22nd July. 

As well as taking home a trolley full of goodies, Nicola successfully found the hidden inflatable in store, meaning Aldi Scotland doubled the total value of her haul and donated the lump sum to her nominated charity, East Lothian Foodbank.  

Aldi Supermarket Sweep winner, Nicola Ewan, said: “It was so much fun doing the supermarket sweep! I was so out of breath afterwards from trying to throw in as many items as I could into my trolley, but I am so pleased to have raised over £400 for The East Lothian Foodbank.” 

Elaine Morrison, East Lothian Foodbank Manager, said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Aldi for running this event and to the winning shopper who has so generously chosen to donate the equivalent monetary value of her shop to the foodbank. We are seeing an increasing number of people struggling to put food on the table due to the current cost of living crisis, and this generous donation will allow us to continue our work to provide emergency food to those most in need in our community.” 

Richard Holloway, Regional Managing Director for Scotland, said: “We are proud that the Aldi Supermarket Sweep is a firm favourite across the country, and we are so pleased to bring it back this year. Congratulations to Nicola who managed to raise an incredible £433.74 for East Lothian Foodbank and snap up a whole load of Aldi treats for herself.” 

Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep will return to Countesswell, Aberdeen in September, giving more savvy shoppers the chance to rummage through the aisles for a good cause. Applications for the Countesswell store will open from Monday 5 September – Sunday 11 September.. Customers can apply in-store or by emailing
