Aldi in West Bridgford opened its doors to customers this morning at 8am, with ParalympicsGB swimming hero Tully Kearney cutting the all-important red ribbon alongside pupils from South Wilford Primary School.

ParalympicsGB gold and silver medallist Tully Kearney gave away complimentary bags of fresh fruit and vegetables from Aldi’s famous Super 6 range to the first 30 customers in the queue, before delivering an inspirational assembly for pupils at South Wilford Primary School as part of the supermarket’s initiative, Get Set to Eat Fresh – which has already inspired over two million school children aged 5-14 years to learn more about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food with their families.

To celebrate the official partnership between Aldi and ParalympicsGB, the gold and silver medallist from Tokyo 2020 focused on the benefits of eating healthy food and the importance of exercise and believing in yourself. She also talked to pupils about her experience of competing as a Paralympian and shared her challenging training regime.

Aldi West Bridgford also offered pupils at South Wilford Primary School the opportunity to win a £20 gift voucher to spend at the new store. The children were tasked with creating a poster to show what healthy eating means to them. Tully Kearney announced the winner during the assembly and the pupil was presented with their £20 voucher.

“It was great to speak with the children at South Wilford Primary School about the importance of eating healthily and how it can be fun to plan and prepare meals as a family. Hopefully I’ve also managed to inspire the pupils to keep active and try different sports.”
