Presenting the Golden Show Cheque

Cheque Photo

Yesterday our students presented the cheque for funds raised during the Golden Show fashion event to Down’s Syndrome Scotland. We celebrated by watching a video of the event, for the benefit of the students who were busy styling and organising models backstage on the night of the show.

Well done everyone and congratulations on organising a fantastic event and raising an impressive sum for a local charity.

The Golden Show

Post confetti

On Friday, our third year students raised £4737 for Down’s Syndrome Scotland in a successful Golden Show event! A fantastic assortment of fashion from Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas was showcased in themed catwalks and our fabulous fashion finale showcased couture designs from Aberdeen based designer and Gray’s School of Art graduate, Daniel Crozier, whose show-stopping dresses wowed the audience (and us!) Students gathered on stage to announce the total funds raised for the charity and were showered in confetti by the large balloon that was elevated over the stage during the event (it worked – yay!)

Feedback from our guests highlights the fashion and entertainment as their favourite aspects of the show; the latter included our fantastic MC, Wray Thomson, the talented singer/ songwriter Anna Barton, and modern violinist, Ramus.

Hitting the Pubs for Charity!

Last week was our Golden Show pub crawl! The students headed around pubs in Aberdeen city centre with their charity buckets, handing out free sweets and trying to raise as much money as possible for Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

Thanks to Triple Kirks, Siberia, Slains, the Monkey House and Paramount Bar for their support. We had a great time and raised £122 for an amazing cause!
