Funding supports healthy living


Aldi has invested £10,500 in sports clubs in the supermarke­t’s annual Scottish Sport Fund.

As part of the retailer’s wider commitment to help cultivate a healthier Scotland, the fund gives the organisati­ons the chance to receive funding ranging from £500 to £2500.

It also aims to help people of all ages take part in physical activity within their local communitie­s by giving the clubs the opportunit­y to secure much needed funding.

Since launching in 2016, Aldi has invested over £50,000 and supports over 100 clubs across Glasgow and Westcentra­l Scotland, helping to improve community access to sports across the region.

Richard Holloway, regional managing director for Scotland, said: “It’s brilliant that a wide variety of sports clubs have been able to benefit from our initiative.

“It’s humbling to see how much of a difference extra funding can make in supporting people to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.”
