Lidl Longford Christmas Trolley Dash

Lidl Ireland is offering customers in Longford a chance to win their entire Christmas shopping with Lidl’s Christmas Trolley Dash.

Winners will be challenged ‘Supermarket Sweep’ style to dash around their local Lidl store and grab as much of their Christmas shopping as possible in just 2 minutes! 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Lidl’s charity partner, Barretstown, and customers can simply purchase a ticket for €1 at the checkout of any Lidl store nationwide.

Last year, Lidl’s Christmas Trolley Dash raised over €280,000 and tickets sales are expected to increase even more this year.

Tickets will be sold at checkouts nationwide from Monday, November 14 to Sunday, December 4. Customers can enter as many times as they like and one winner will be chosen at random from each of Lidl’s 147 stores. The Trolley Dash will take place in every Lidl store on Saturday, December 17 at 8am.

Speaking about the Trolley Dash competition, Dee Ahearn, CEO of Barretstown, said: “Barretstown offers free, medically endorsed camps for children and their families living with cancer and other serious illnesses. Each year Barretstown needs €4.8 million to run these camps. This would not be possible without the support of CSR initiatives such as the Lidl Christmas Trolley Dash, and the generosity of Lidl staff and customers. As well as that, it is a wonderful opportunity for 147 families in Ireland to win their entire Christmas shopping and some lovely goodies just in time for Christmas.”

If you’re lucky enough to be one of the Lidl Christmas Trolley Dash winners, here are a few top tips to keep in mind before dashing down the aisles;

·        Practice, practice, practice!
·        Visit the store before your dash and familiarise yourself with the layout

·        Most Trolley Dash winners will want to stock up on food for Christmas. Make a list and keep an eye out for Lidl’s Christmas Deluxe and Favorina goodies to fill your trolley
·        Don’t panic! Dash through one aisle at a time so you don’t miss anything
