Aldi’s spooky treat for kids
There was a spooktacular boost for a group of Halfway youngsters last week.
Ha l f w ay Pa r e nt and Toddler Group in Cambuslang were given a selection of special Hallowe’en gifts from the new Aldi supermarket that recently opened in School Avenue in Cambuslang.
The group, which meets in North Halfway Hall, received a selection of products from Aldi’s Mamia and Hallowe’en Specialbuys ranges, as well as coffee and snacks for the parents.
Aldi arranged the donation as part of its ongoing community engagement strategy.
Aldi area manager, Kirsty Cribbes, said: “We’ve had a fantastic morning with the Halfway Parent and Toddler Group, and we hope our donation will support the great work they do in the area.
“Aldi prides itself on engaging with the local community, and we look forward to working with more groups in the future.”
The Halfway Parent and Toddler Group runs classes every Monday and Wednesday during school term time, between 10am and 11.30am.
The group have toys and games for children to enjoy under parental supervision and parties at Christmas, with a visit from Santa.
The youngsters marked receiving their fantastic Halloween gifts with a party, where they dressed up in costumes ranging from witches, princesses and skeletons to characters like the Super Mario Brothers and Batman.
They also had some scary fun and games as well as the snacks.
Anne Duncan, the treasurer for the Halfway Parent and Toddler Group, was delighted with the gifts.
She said: “We would like to thank Aldi for their kind donation which we will use to help provide variety to the children’s snack time.”
