Brewing up a storm: Lidl is supporting the STV children’s appeal, one cuppa at a time

Lidl has teamed up with STV’s weatherman Sean Batty, who’s got the kettle on in support of Lidl’s ‘chari-tea’ campaign.

Together, we are encouraging Scots to brew up a storm with special packs of ‘chari-tea’ tea and biscuits in an effort to raise money for Scottish children’s charities.

Packs of Knightsbridge Scottish Blend tea and McAllister’s Luxury Butterscotch Crunch and Dark Chocolate Orange biscuits will be on sale at Lidl stores in Scotland between 28 July and 22 September with 10p from every pack donated to STV Children’s Appeal.

Funds raised will go to grassroots charities and community organisations supported by the STV Children’s Appeal, who work with some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children and young people.

Lidl have always been a huge supporter of the appeal. Over the last decade, Lidl and its customers have raised over £572,000 through initiatives including charity products, events, raffles and exercise challenges.

Weatherman and STV Children’s Appeal ambassador Sean Batty said: “Now more than ever it’s vital we all do our bit to support local charities, and what better way than by having a Lidl cuppa and a wee biscuit? Together we really can brew up a storm for good causes that are sure to brighten the days of children and young people right across Scotland.”

Lidl’s Regional Director for Scotland, Ross Millar, commented: “At Lidl, we pride ourselves on being able to make a positive impact on the local communities we serve, and the ‘chari-tea’ initiative is a great way for our shoppers to get involved in making that difference.”

So pop the kettle on this summer to show your support for the drive, with a tasty treat in hand!
