Aldi unveils new Teenage Cancer Trust Christmas card designs
Aldi has announced the winner of its 2021 Christmas card design competition with Teenage Cancer Trust.
The supermarket invited young people supported by the charity to submit designs for the range as part of its ongoing partnership.
The winning designs were created by 24 year old Chrissy Cruickshank from Bristol, who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in 2019. The card will appear in stores across the country from this week with 50p from the sale of each pack going to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Aldi said Cruikshank impressed the judges with both her Christmas tree and golden star card designs.
Mary Dunn, managing director of corporate responsibly at Aldi UK, said: “We hope everyone enjoyed taking part in our Christmas card design competition as much as we enjoyed looking at the submissions.
“All of the entries were fantastic, but we were really impressed with Chrissy and couldn’t choose between her two designs so decided to produce both.
“The work Teenage Cancer Trust does for young people is incredibly important and we are glad to be able to support them with our ongoing partnership.”
Aldi has raised more than £6 million through various initiatives in support of Teenage Cancer Trust to date as it looks to raise a further £4 million by 2027.
Cruikshank said: “I was motivated by my Youth Support Coordinator, Hannah at TCT, to get involved with this competition as she knew I loved art and painting – and now I’m so glad that I did!
“It is the little things like this that actually make such a difference to your mindset and I can’t wait to see the cards appear in stores this week. I’ll be sending one to all my friends and family.”
