All Aldi stores will close from 6pm on Christmas Eve until Thursday 27th December 2018 to give staff a well-earned break, and stores will be donating unsold fresh food to good causes in the local community.
Each of the UK stores will select one charity from their local area who may benefit from a donation. Interested parties should contact Christmas@aldi.co.uk with the following information:
- Organisation name
- Charity number (if applicable)
- Organisation focus (e.g. soup kitchen, food bank)
- Contact details
- If possible, the postcode of the 3 nearest Aldi stores
The closing date for applications is Sunday 18th November 2018. Successful applicants will require volunteers and transport to collect the food at 5.30pm on Christmas Eve. Only charities who apply via this email address will be eligible.
Local Aldi stores across Sefton include:
- Washington Parade, Bootle
- Park Lane West, Netherton
- Moor Lane, Thornton
- Liverpool Road, Birkdale
- Meols Cop Centre, Southport
Last year we donated almost 500,000 meals from over 300 participating stores. With your help, we can donate even more this year.
