Aberdeen riding-for-breast-cancer event a success

The night kicked off from 4.30 with taster sessions on the beginner slope with lots of people trying out skiing or snowboarding for the first time.  These proved very popular with about 30 people signing up over two hours of half hour sessions.  With the instructors sharing their passion for the sport I think we managed to convert some people into winter lovers ready to embrace the coming winter with the excitement that we at the Aberdeen Snowsports Centre do.

At 7 the session started to kick off on the main slope with many girls and a few guys hitting the jumps in their costumes, sometimes trying to land a jump with a pink cape flying into your face can prove difficult as one of our local riders proved.

In the main cabin Holly’s delicious cupcakes went down well as did the burgers and sausages keeping our bellies warm on the cold night.

The night ended with the votes been counted for each of our categories, each rider was asked to vote for their favourite costume, female skier, snowboarder, overall male and wipeout of the night.  The raffle was drawn and many people won some pretty special prizes donated by local businesses and shops.

With a whopping £639 raised, we thank all that showed their support on October 28 and before.

To all those who donated prizes, taught tasters, baked cakes, flipped burgers, got dressed up, wore pink and came down to ride and ski with friends at Aberdeen Snowsports centre we thank you.  It wouldn’t have been possible without you all.

The money raised will be donated to the charity Breast Cancer Care who provide free and confidential information, practical assistance and emotional support for anyone affected by breast cancer.

Thanks again to all who made it possible, see you again next year.
