HAMPSHIRE shoppers have raised £1,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Last month, customers in participating Aldi stores were given the opportunity to buy a £1 raffle ticket to aid the charity.

The Alton Retail Park store in Alton had the highest raffle ticket sales in the region. One winner from each store won a £100 gift card.

The customer raffle was part of Aldi’s celebrations of raising £10m for the charity since 2017.

National sustainability director at Aldi UK, Liz Fox, said: "We would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who took part in our charity raffle to support Teenage Cancer Trust last month.

"The invaluable work they do for young people up and down the country cannot be underestimated and we will continue to do all we can to support them as we work towards our new fundraising target of £15m by 2027."

Teenage Cancer Trust chief executive, Kate Collins, added: "It is amazing that Aldi shoppers across the country purchased over 74,000 raffle tickets for Teenage Cancer Trust in this charity raffle.

"These vital funds will help us to make sure that young people with cancer have the best possible care that they need and deserve."
