OLYMPIC MEDALIST AND CARRINGTON PREFECTS OPEN NEW ALDI STORE

An Olympic medallist was on hand to open a brand new Aldi store in High Wycombe today.

Olympic bronze medallist, Sally Walton, cut the red ribbon to officially open the new Aldi store on Tannery Road, with help from the capable hands of Carrington Junior prefects - Toshani, Jessica, Charlie and Joshua. The children had a magnificent morning, being some of the first people allowed to venture around the new store. Accompanied by Mrs Majcher and Mrs Lomas, they all had a lovely time.

Joshua declared, "What an honour! To help with the cutting of the ribbon is something I'll always remember!" "Mrs Majcher looked so excited to be Aldi's first customer - she looked like the cat that got the cream!" Jessica added. 

The children had an opportunity to talk with the store manager and other Aldi employees, as well as Sally Walton herself. Toshani shared her surprise, "Sally, despite being a leading hockey player, seemed so humble and down-to-earth." Charlie said, "Meeting an Olympic medal winner was very inspiring."

Team GB star, Sally Walton, added: “It’s been an honour to be a part of Aldi’s store opening. I’ve had a great time talking to both the adults and children of Carrington about healthy eating and my experience of the Olympics.”


OLYMPIC SUPERSTAR GIVES INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE TO CHILDREN OF CJS

Children at Carrington Junior School were visited by Olympic bronze medallist, Sally Walton, who helped teach the children about the benefits of fresh and healthy food. The children were kindly presented by the Aldi ambassador with enough fruit to feed the entire school.

The hockey star delivered an inspirational assembly where she talked to pupils about her challenging journey to become the very best hockey player she could possibly be. She spoke passionately about how the school values (respect, responsibility, learning, kindness, friendship and resilience) were significant in her achieving her goal of becoming a professional athlete, despite being told by her teacher that she 'wasn't good enough'. Sally had to believe to achieve, in order to succeed
