Staff from Aldi visited Woodston Primary School earlier this week with a donation of festive products to be used at the school’s Christmas Fete last week.
The donation was arranged by Aldi bosses to coincide with the cut-price supermarket’s new, extended Stanground store, which re-opened in November.
The school was presented with a range of their products including mince pies, Christmas crackers and a variety of festive goodies.
School Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) member, Emma Harris, said: “The wonderful donation from Aldi will enable us to ensure each child attending the fete will be given a treat from Santa.
The donation has also enabled us to make some beautiful hampers.
We are all overwhelmed by the store’s amazing generosity.”
The newly extended Stanground store opened last week.
The first 100 customers in the queue were given golden envelopes containing a range of prizes, with one person taking home the star prize, a 32’’HD TV, after queuing from 5am.
The store has been extended by more than 350 square metres and now stands at 1,350 square metres and is supported by 80 car parking spaces with 1,600 product lines, many award-winning, on offer.
Aldi Store Manager, James Huett who was at the opening and donated the products, said: “It was a fantastic morning, meeting everyone from Woodston Primary School, and we are so proud to be able to support their Christmas Fete.”
“We hope the products ensure this is their most successful year yet.”
