Aldi recently announced a new two-year partnership with Barnardos to raise €1 million for vulnerable young children across Ireland. This will be delivered through a two-year programme of staff, store, customer and community fundraising initiatives supported by the company. All monies raised will go directly to Barnardos Early Years and Family Support Programmes, enabling the charity to provide the 10,000 warm meals to children who attend its centres in addition to funding other key services. Each year, more than 21,000 vulnerable and at-risk families and young children benefit from the services provided by Barnardos.


For the month of November, Aldi staff took on the challenge of walking 20,000,000 steps to raise €20,000 for their charity partner. Aldi staff completed the challenge with flying colours and €20,000 worth of Aldi vouchers were donated to Barnardos. The vouchers helped over 500 vulnerable families prepare for the Christmas season – buying food for dinner and gifts for family.


The above products are available in 145 Aldi stores nationwide now.
