Aldi aid for six Wexford causes

By Dan Walsh

Six Wexford-based charities have become the latest beneficiaries of Aldi’s Community Grants programme, with each charity receiving a €500 grant from the Aldi store teams in County Wexford.

Kathrina Doyle and Jim Delaney of Wexford Marine Watch receiving a €500 Donation from Aldi Wexford Charity Champion Luke Walshe as part of Aldi’s Community Grants programme.

€500 grants were presented to Wexford Marine Watch, South East Animal Rescue, Southend Family Resource Centre, Sister Aidan Centre, Pieta House Wexford and Talk to Tom.

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.

John Curtin, Group Buying Director, Aldi Ireland, told WexfordLocal.com; “We are very proud to have been able to contribute to supporting local charities through the Aldi Community Grants programme and we’re pleased to see the impact of our donation in the local communities for County Wexford.”

Aldi operates seven stores in County Wexford at Gorey, Enniscorthy, New Ross and Wexford town, employs over 4,500 people at 145 stores across the country, and Aldi claims to be Ireland’s highest paying supermarket and the first supermarket to pay staff the Living Wage Technical Group’s €12.30 rate, which came into effect in February 2020.
