Aldi has announced TV and radio presenter Lucy Kennedy (above) as the supermarket’s first Pet Ambassador. Lucy and her family welcomed rescue puppy Riley, a Golden Labrador crossed with Springer, last month.
“I take huge pride knowing that our first pet is a rescue dog, as I am passionate about supporting the amazing work that people such as Lynne from Milo’s Mission Rescue do. ‘Adopt don’t shop’ has become my mantra ever since we put our names down a year ago to adopt a puppy.
“Riley and I look forward to sharing our ups and downs (#rileyandme) and hopefully creating a community of like-minded people throughout the year. Over the next few months, I will be talking to pet experts who will hopefully be helping our family and Riley and along the way, along with lots of other families.”
