The winner of Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep in Paisley has raised an amazing £355.18 for a local foodbank, while picking up over £170 in Aldi favourites for herself.   

After a year hiatus, Aldi’s hugely popular Supermarket Sweep returned to Scotland and lucky shopper Lynn Farren, who was chosen as the winner of an in-store competition, took part in the five-minute trolley dash for charity on Thursday 16th September.    

As well as taking home a trolley full of goodies, Lynn 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, Renfrewshire Foodbank.   

Aldi Supermarket Sweep winner, Lynn Farren, said: “I was so surprised to be selected for Aldi’s Supermarket Sweep as I have never won anything before.  I decided to enter to support my local foodbank and I was delighted that I was able to help to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause. I really enjoyed the experience of the Supermarket Sweep at my local Aldi.” 

Crystal Clayton, Foodbank Manager, Renfrewshire Foodbank, said: “We would like to thank Aldi for their continuous support of Renfrewshire Foodbank. We really enjoyed our evening, and the winner Lynn did extremely well. The money that we receive will help us provide food parcels for those who are experiencing food poverty and will also enable us to support those in crisis, helping them get back on their feet.” 

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 Lynn who managed to raise an incredible £355.18 for Renfrewshire 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.
