FOR Skibbereen woman, Terry Minihane, Christmas came early this year when she won the 6th and most successful annual Lidl Trolley Dash competition.

Terry managed to grab €155 worth of Christmas shopping at the Lidl Skibbereen store, with little more than a week left until Christmas.

The Lidl Trolley Dash is an annual fundraising initiative where Lidl customers can purchase a €1 ticket in Lidl stores for a limited period to be in with a chance of winning a dash around their local Lidl. Each winner has two minutes to grab as much as they can

Terry was one of 167 Lidl shoppers across the country, who won the opportunity to dash around their local store in a Supermarket Sweep style competition. Each winner had two minutes to fill their trolley with as many products as possible from festive flavoured soups to mince pies to turkeys.  With fundraisers compromised this year due to the pandemic, the funds raised from initiatives like this are paramount to charities. The €1 Trolley Dash tickets were sold in Lidl stores across the country from November 16th  to 29th  with all proceeds being donated to Jigsaw, Lidl’s charity partner. In Co Cork alone, more than €78,000 was raised for the charity with a total of €310,000 being raised nationwide.
