Geordies given chance to boost their Platinum Jubilee Street Party with Aldi competition

The people of the North East can win £500 worth of vouchers to cater their party

Residents in Newcastle and across Tyneside can boost their Platinum Jubilee celebrations with a cash injection from Aldi.

The supermarket has launched a Jubilee Street Party Fund to help locals planning on taking to their roads with catering.

A series of £500 vouchers are up for grabs to help communities with ten lucky winners to be chosen in the North East.

The money can be spent on anything the winner needs to finish their iconic street party planning from decorations to sweet treats and booze to savoury snacks.

Aldi’s Facebook page is hosting the competition, with entrants asked to tag their local community Facebook group or a friendly neighbour to be in with a chance of winning.

Entries are open from now until 8 am on Thursday, May 26.

Winners will be contacted on Friday, May 27 to allow plenty of time for them to stock up on all their street party essentials.

Richard Thornton, Communications Director at Aldi UK, said: “Winners of our Jubilee Street Party Fund will be given vouchers to buy all they need to celebrate this momentous occasion with their neighbours and local communities, and we encourage the streets, roads, avenues and drives of Tyne and Wear to put their nominations forward.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to organise their own events and street parties and look forward to seeing how the lucky winners of our competition decide to mark the big day.”
