SCHOOLS on the Isle of Wight could win £20,000 to spend on sports equipment as part of a new campaign by Aldi to encourage young people to be more active.

The scheme, launched on Tuesday, will see Aldi shoppers receive stickers every time they spend £30 or more in store, which can be taken into schools and added to their sticker chart as part of the new Kit For Schools campaign.

Once a school completes their sticker chart, they will receive one entry into the final prize draw to win £20,000 of sports equipment.

Twenty winning schools will be drawn from across the county.

The competition is a part of Aldi’s partnership with Team GB to encourage young people to engage in sport.

Sean McGinty, marketing director at Aldi UK, said: “We are committed to working with Team GB to inspire young people to eat well and move more.

"Being active at school is incredibly important, and our Kit for Schools initiative will give young people the chance to take part in additional sports activities.

“We will continue to work with schools across the UK in the run-up to Tokyo 2020 in an effort to encourage children to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.”

Tim Ellerton, commercial director at Team GB, said: “Aldi’s Kit for Schools initiative will open up a whole range of new opportunities for local school pupils to get involved in sport with good quality equipment across a range of sports and help drive enjoyment and activity as we look ahead to Tokyo 2020 in just under a year’s time.”
