It expects to open another 70 stores this year. Yesterday it reported record sales for DecemberThe retailer will encourage its staff and customers to support the fundraising campaign. In addition it will utilise its national resources to support the charity. For example, it will match its regional depots with regional units in NHS hospitals “to provide the most meaningful local impact at national scale”.  Teenage Cancer Trust works in partnership with the NHS to provide highly-trained expert staff and specialist cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK. It is there from diagnosis, through treatment and after treatment. Mary Dunn, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said:“At Aldi, we ensure quality food is available at everyday low prices as we believe it shouldn’t be the right of a privileged few – and we feel the same about specialist care for young people facing cancer. That’s why we’re extremely proud to be supporting Teenage Cancer Trust through this sustained legacy partnership.“By committing to a five year relationship we can make a truly tangible impact and help close the gap between those who are supported as they face cancer and those currently out of the system”.  158 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis48 Howard Lake | 13 January 2017 | Newscenter_img Aldi’s carrier bags raised £775,000 for RSPB in just one year.Proceeds from the sale of Aldi’s carrier bags are donated to the RSPB as part of a partnership agreement.
