Coronavirus cancels Camelon Aldi store’s trolley dash in aid of food bank
A supermarket trolley dash organised to support a Falkirk district food bank has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Aldi in Camelon announced last week it would be staging the supermarket sweep to give one lucky shopper a chance to do a five-minute sprint around the store and take everything they colleced home for free.
Next month’s event would also have seen the supermarket giant double the cash value of the trolley of goods and donate the sum to a local food bank if the shopper had found three listed Scottish products dotted around the store.
Those interested were given until this Saturday to fill out an application form.
