Five sports clubs in Fife have benefitted from a share of £2,500 support from ALDI.

The ALDI Scottish Sport Fund was launched last year following ALDI’s national sponsorship of Team GB.

The Fund is designed to support charity sports clubs across Scotland and build a legacy from the Olympic Games by helping young people take part in physical activity within their local communities.

Flyers Trampoline Club, Fife Sailability, St Andrews Colts Football Club, Dundee and District Table Tennis Association and Kingdom Off Road Motorcycle Club each received £500 from the ALDI Scottish Sport Fund.

Richard Holloway, managing director of ALDI in Scotland, said: “The Scottish Sport Fund is our way of giving clubs and organisations a helping hand to continue their great work in the local area.

“We hope that our continued efforts to offer vital funding to sports clubs across Scotland will lead to healthier and more active lifestyles in the long term. We are excited to see the ALDI Scottish Sport Fund go from strength to strength, helping local sports clubs to do the same.”

Olympic gold and silver medallist Callum Skinner said: “ALDI’s support of sports clubs in Scotland is hugely important. I started training at the City of Edinburgh Racing club in Meadowbank so know first-hand that this type of funding will make a considerable difference to clubs and charities throughout the country.

“Every penny from the ALDI Scottish Sport Fund will be put to good use and, with support like this, clubs throughout Scotland will have the means to invest in new equipment and training, giving their members the best possible chance of achieving their goals.”

ALDI’s Scottish Sport Fund is part of the retailer’s wider commitment to help cultivate a healthier Scotland.
