Corporate Social Responsibility



Irish Cancer Society

Aldi is the proud sponsor of the Irish Cancer Society Colour Dash. The Colour Dash 5k runs are held across Ireland in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick. Each kilometre, a different colour – representing a different cancer – of powder paint is thrown at participants, creating a kaleidoscope of colour. ‘Dashers’ start the route wearing a white t-shirt that is quickly transformed into a colourful work of art. Thousands of enthusiastic walkers, joggers and runners will inject some colour into their lives this summer. 100% of the funds raised through the Colour Dash will go directly to the Irish Cancer Society.

Being part of local communities is a huge part of who we are as a business. We get involved in a range of initiatives which allow us to give back to the local community. We involve our staff with our Community Grants Programme, as well as our proud sponsorship of Aldi Community Games and Aldi Play Rugby.


Aldi Play Rugby is a free initiative developed by the IRFU and supported by Aldi. The programme is a fun and safe way for primary school kids to get involved in playing rugby. Once signed up, a school can access everything they need to get up and running including sessions with provincial staff, free online coaching resources and even coaching equipment.



We believe in supporting the communities within which we operate.

with the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation within their local community to support. Nominated charities are assessed according to a defined selection criteria, with the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receiving a €500 donation from Aldi.
