The Aldi supermarket in Canterbury has started to donate surplus food directly to the Pilgrims Hospices.

Perishable produce such as fruit and veg, long life foods and baked goods are among the products it is giving the hospices, which are based in London Road.

It is part of the supermarket’s programme of directly supporting 22 Kent charities.

Fritz Walleczek, managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We’re always looking for new and creative ways to increase the amount of food we are able to donate.

“This partnership is enabling us to distribute even more surplus stock, while supporting a vast range of good causes, across the Kent region.

“Our aim is for fresh, healthy food to be accessible for everyone.”E
