GB Olympian supports Aldi store’s charity efforts

A

ldi’s colleagues and customers in Bradley Stoke received a special visit from Team GB athlete Sam Murray after topping the supermarket’s charity cycleathon in the South West. Colleagues at the store cycled more than 250km in the weeks before Christmas to raise money for Aldi’s charity partner, the Teenage Cancer Trust. Their endeavours helped raise nearly £1,000 and modern pentathlete Sam Murray was on hand to help them celebrate. The pre-Christmas fundraising push was part of Aldi’s five-year partnership with the Teenage Cancer Trust to raise £5 million in an effort to ensure no young person faces cancer alone. Speaking about the visit, Sam Murray said: “It’s been great to spend time in store today and with the community that has supported this activity. The huge distance cycled by the team here goes to show that a bit of healthy competition and a good cause can help to achieve big things.” Fritz Walleczek, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi, said: “This fantastic effort raised more

UK. The charity is there at every stage from diagnosis, through to treatment and after treatment. It also brings young people with cancer together so they can support each other.
