Staff at a North-east supermarket have raised more than £1,000 for charity.

Employees at Aldi stores in Aberdeen, Westhill and Inverurie have taken part in a range of fundraising activities, including a locally held fun run and bucket shakes in store.

Similar events were also held in supermarkets across the country, which has so far raised £1.2 million nationally for Teenager Cancer Trust.

The company partnered with the charity in January 2017, and there will be more fundraising events set to take place throughout the year, and in future years.

Amy Grigor, area manager at Aldi UK, said: “Our colleagues and customers have gone to great lengths to raise funds for this fantastic cause.

“The Teenage Cancer Trust makes a huge difference to people’s lives in our local area and we have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity our employees and customers have shown. We’re looking forward to raising even more in the months and years to come.”
