Aldi makes €500 donation to Purple House Cancer Support

Bray based Purple House Cancer Support has become the latest charity to benefit from Aldi's Community Grants programme, receiving a €500 grant from Aldi's Bray store team.

The €500 grant was presented to John Woods and Brendan O'Leary, from Purple House Cancer Support, by Agnieszka Rudzka, Aldi's Bray "Charity Champion".

Aldi's Community Grants programme helps fund local charities and organisations that contribute vital work and services in their local communities. Each local charity supported is chosen by Aldi employees, enabling them to help the local good causes they are passionate about.

The programme has contributed to over 340 different local projects to date, donating over €250,000 since 2016.

Commenting Jan Brchl, Aldi Bray Store Manager said: 'We here at the Bray store are proud to have chosen Purple House Cancer Support. It's a great cause that provides a range of free services for patients, survivors, carers, families and friends of all ages who are affected by cancer and their work makes a huge difference to the people of Bray.

'Being part of and investing in local communities is something that Aldi is committed to and we are delighted to be able to make this contribution.'

Operating four stores in County Wicklow, Aldi is deeply involved in the local community. Through its partnership with FoodCloud, its stores in County Wicklow have donated over 25,400 meals to local charities to date, while as Foróige's lead sponsor since 2015, it has helped support initiatives including the Aldi Foróige Youth Citizenship Awards and the Aldi Foróige Junior Baking Competition.
