As well as winning their Christmas shopping for free (the average of goods won per person totalled €350), each winner also contributed to the whopping €135,438 which was raised from ticket sales in just 2 short weeks.

A total of €2,383 was raised in Clare alone.

Speaking about Lidl’s Christmas trolley dash, Sinead Flynn, CSR assistant with Lidl Ireland, said: “We are thrilled with the result of our Christmas fundraising initiatives for our Charity partner Barretstown. In two short weeks, Lidl stores across the country have raised over €135,000 from one initiative alone. We would like to thank all of our customers who have supported Barretstown through these initiatives and look forward to ramping up our activities in 2015 to raise even more much needed funds for Barretstown.”
