Aldi To Sell 500 Limited-Edition NHS Kevin & Katie Carrots For Charity

Kevin the Carrot is back. Aldi has announced it will auction limited edition toys of the nation's two favourite carrots, Kevin and Katie, in two auctions lasting five days each.

The auctions are in aid of NHS Charities Together and the supermarket's long-term charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.

To recognise the ongoing work of both the NHS and Teenage Cancer Trust Stuff, including those who have treated patients throughout the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, 500 of Aldi's famous Kevin and Katie carrot plush toys will be sold wearing doctor and nurse uniforms.

The limited edition Kevin and Katie carrot toys will be sold via eBay. Fans and supporters of the amazing charities and of Aldi's cuddly root vegetables can contribute to a good cause by bidding, with 100 per cent of the proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together and Teenage Cancer Trust.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: "Our team has been working hard to do our bit to help to feed the nation, from priority access for emergency workers, to charity food donations through our ongoing work with Neighbourly.

"Following the success of our Aldi auction earlier this year, we want to raise money again to show our appreciation for the amazing work of the NHS and Teenage Cancer Trust staff.

"With our Kevin and Katie plush toys proving extremely popular and having helped to raise money for charity in the past, we felt what better way than to bring back our 'superhero' doctor and nurse carrots for fans to bid on!"

Kevin the Carrot returned in Aldi's hugely popular Christmas television advert last month and the supermarket launched a cute toy collection following the Kevin's return.
