Aldi is doing something quite special before it closes its doors for Christmas this year.
Instead of simply binning all its unsold produce on 24 December, the supermarket is passing leftovers on to charities.
Food bank organisers are being invited to visit their local Aldi shortly before closing time on Christmas Eve - with as many as 30 boxes of food expected to be available at some stores.
A supermarket spokesperson commented: "Aldi is offering local organisations the opportunity to receive surplus food from their stores on the afternoon of Christmas Eve.
"As Aldi stores will shut at 4pm on Christmas Eve, they will have a variety of good quality surplus food products that they will wish to redistribute.”
