Aldi supermarket sweep to help raise money for Aberdeenshire foodbank

Aldi customers in Peterhead are to be offered the chance to raise funds for a local food bank by taking part in the Supermarket Sweep challenge.

And as well as fundraising, Peterhead locals have the chance to take home their favourite items from Aldi’s store on Kirk Street.

Launched in 2016, Aldi's Supermarket Sweep offers shoppers the opportunity to take part in a five-minute trolley dash, allowing them to gather as many Aldi favourites as they can within that time frame.

Aldi Scotland will then donate the cash value of the trolley’s contents to a local food bank of the sweeper’s choosing.

And the sweeper can double the donation and take home a SpecialBuy item of their choice, worth up to £50, if they find the hidden inflatable in-store.

Peterhead residents can apply for the Supermarket Sweep from Monday, 17th June to Sunday, 23rd June.

Graham Nicolson, Regional Managing Director, Aldi Scotland, said: “The Supermarket Sweep holds a special place in the Aldi calendar, and we are very much looking forward to its return for another year.

“We are excited to offer one lucky Peterhead resident the chance to enjoy a truly unique supermarket experience.

“At Aldi Scotland, we recognise the essential work that food banks do across Scotland, especially during these challenging times. Our commitment to supporting this work is stronger than ever, with over £10,000 donated to food banks through our Supermarket Sweep initiative in 2023.

“In 2024, Aldi Scotland’s Supermarket Sweep will be travelling all over Scotland. Not only does the initiative provide a brilliant way to raise funds for local food banks, but it also gives our loyal customers the chance to stock up on their favourite Aldi products.”

Shoppers will be asked to nominate their chosen food bank when applying to take part. Entrants must be over 18 years old, and alcohol products are not included in the sweep.

Entry is free and customers can apply in-store or by emailing Entrants must be available to take part in the sweep after stores close at 10pm on their chosen date.
