Aldi are proud to partner with Teenage Cancer Trust

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing specialised nursing care and support for young people aged 13-24 with cancer. Each year, their specially trained nurses and youth workers support hundreds of teenagers and young adults across 28 specifically designed units in hospitals nationwide, as well as helping many more in local hospitals and at home. In addition, the charity organises post-treatment events to bring young people together to support each other - whilst having some well-deserved fun!

 

It’s our goal to help raise awareness of this vital cause and work together with Teenage Cancer Trust to ensure every young person with cancer gets the support they need, when they need it, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

How Aldi are helping

In 2017, Aldi and Teenage Cancer Trust joined as a charity partnership, aiming to raise £5 million. The £5 million target was celebrated over 18 months early so a new target of £10 million was quickly established and our goal was to reach this by 2027. We got to work but once again, we reached the target very early!

In April 2024, we announced an exciting new fundraising target of £15 million to raise by 2027.

 

How do we do it?

Aldi colleagues have taken part in hundreds of challenges, including skydives, marathons, mud runs and hikes, and they continue to think of new and fun ways to raise much needed funds for Teenage Cancer Trust. Many Aldi colleagues also donate the leftover pennies from their pay slips to the charity! There is never a dull day in Aldi and colleagues continue to amaze us with their efforts. However, it isn’t just our colleagues, Aldi customers support the charity by purchasing products we sell in aid of the charity, but be quick - once they’re gone, they’re gone!

 

£10m is enough to support funding for:

Royal Albert Hall concerts

Since 2017, Aldi have supported the annual Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. A full week of shows, with world famous singers and comedians performing to support Teenage Cancer Trust in their aim to ensure no young person faces cancer alone. In 2024, Aldi were the Headline Sponsor of the shows, providing financial sponsorship, colleague volunteers, PR support and backstage provisions. Aldi also matched text donations up to £50,000!
