Aldi Raises £10 Million For Teenage Cancer Trust


Aldi has extended its fundraising target for Teenage Cancer Trust to £15 million by 2027 after already hitting its £10 million goal ahead of schedule.


In July 2020, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket pledged to raise £10 million by 2027 after reaching its initial £5 million target over 18 months early.


However, after also hitting the £10 million milestone sooner than anticipated, Aldi has now pledged to raise a further £5 million by 2027.


With more than 1,000 stores and 11 regional distribution centres, colleagues across the UK have come together to help raise funds, from bake sales and marathons to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, boosted by the generosity of Aldi shoppers.


Since partnering with the charity in 2017, the money raised so far by Aldi has supported the funding of 30 specialist nurses, 15 youth support coordinators and four multi-disciplinary team coordinators for five years, helping to ensure young people receive age-appropriate specialist care and support.


Liz Fox, National Sustainability Director at Aldi UK, said: “We are incredibly proud of our partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the incredible Aldi colleagues and shoppers who have supported the charity’s vital work."


“We couldn’t have reached this milestone without their help, and we’re now looking forward to raising the bar even further with a new target of £15 million by 2027.”


Kate Collins, Chief Executive at Teenage Cancer Trust, added: “It is remarkable that Aldi colleagues and shoppers have raised a phenomenal £10 million for Teenage Cancer Trust. Not only this, but we are so grateful that they have pledged to raise another £5 million. Their commitment to making sure young people do not face cancer alone is hugely appreciated – and so needed."


“These vital funds help us to make sure that young people with cancer have the best possible care and support that they need and deserve. Thank you to Aldi colleagues and customers for your ongoing loyal support – you are making our work possible across the UK.”
