This September, Aldi have launched a really exciting campaign offering schools across the UK the chance to win £20,000 through it’s new Kit For Schools initiative.
As part of Aldi’s long-standing partnership with Team GB, they are going to be donating huge cash prizes to twenty schools to enable them to invest in equipment for a healthy legacy – the money can be spent on sports equipment, kitchen equipment for healthy meals, new playground equipment – anything which supports a healthy childhood and future and all things which cash strapped schools might not be able to prioritise funds for under normal circumstances.
In addition to this, all schools who complete a Kit for Schools poster will be eligible to receive a Mini Olympics Kit which includes, relay batons, cones and bibs. (Each poster has space for about 300 stickers)
So how can you get involved and support your child’s school?
From 6th September, Aldi shoppers will receive a sticker every time they spend £30 or more in store – these stickers can then be taken into schools and added to their sticker chart. If you’re already an Aldi shopper then you just need to make sure you collect your stickers, if you’re not an Aldi shopper – perhaps now is the time to give it a go!
The aim is to get your hands on as many stickers as possible
Every UK school that signs up to the initiative will receive a sticker chart and for each completed chart, they will receive one entry into the final prize draw to win £20,000 – so the more stickers your school collects, the better their chances of winning a huge lump of cash.
You will get a sticker for every £30 you spend in store (do make sure you ask if you’re not automatically given them). The poster takes almost 300 stickers to fill which really isn’t a lot if you can get the whole school community on board!
Make sure your child’s school is signed up
All UK Primary Schools are eligible to take part and can sign up at https://getseteatfresh.co.uk/kitforschools however Aldi have sent out packs to all eligible schools so you just need to check in with your Head that they are taking part!
Ben, Chloe and Amy’s school are already signed up and their Head sent out a message on the school newsletter this week to make sure the whole school is aware of the initative! If your friends and neighbours are Aldi shoppers but don’t have a school to donate to, don’t forget to let them know you are collecting!
How long have you got to collect stickers?
So the promotion has already started and you can collect stickers right through til 3rd November 2019, with completed posters being submitted by schools before 18th November 2019 so don’t leave them hanging around in your purse – get them sent into school as soon as you’ve collected them!
Aldi & Team GB are inspiring the next generation to be more active
The stickers are exciting for the children to collect – they include images of many different Team GB athletes as well as interesting facts about them and their discipline. The poster is laid out in such a way as to encourage children to be more active – as they add their sticker to the chart, they will find a suggestion of a challenge or physical activity that children can take part in to become more active (though I’m not sure that being encourage to hop into assembly will go down well in some schools!)
