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!

The Golden Show sponsorship

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our Golden Show sponsors so far, especially Bon Accord & St Nicholas and AVC Media!

Our students have been on an Aberdeen city and shire road trip, seeking in-kind sponsorship over the last week and we’ve had some fantastic support from local businesses! These include: Paramount Bar and Yo Sushi – who will kindly sponsor our VIP room; Toni and Guy and Stacey Strachan Makeup – who are helping style our models; Breakneck Comedy – who are sponsoring our fabulous MC (Wray Thomson); and we also have some exciting raffle prizes, ranging from dinner at 210 Bistro to an overnight stay at brand new guest house, the Registry! We’ve also had huge support from Shooligans, the Chess Group, Nova, Trend, and Premiere Productions.

If you would like to get involved please let us know! It’s all in aid of Down’s Syndrome Scotland!

Fashionable fundraising

Over the next few weeks, and in the run up to the fashion show, we have a number of fundraising events planned! The first will take place tomorrow in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas and our students have been working hard this morning to organise some fun Easter themed activities! We’ll be in the centre tomorrow from 10am to 5pm, next to Costa, so come along and see us to find out more about the fashion show and our charity, Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

3 Weeks to World of Colour…

3 Weeks to World of Colour...

With less than 3 weeks until the World of Colour fashion show, our students are busy fundraising for MND Scotland. Last week the students took part in a sponsored cycle at RGU: Sport where they raised £180 and cycled 180 miles – £1 per mile (which could take them from Milan to Venice)!

Yesterday the students raised over £230 selling vintage treasures at a car boot sale in Errol!

Watch out for them in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord & St Nicholas this weekend, where they’ll be in the centre all day Saturday – running competitions, painting faces and selling tickets for the World of Colour fashion show!

Fashionable Fundraising

Fashionable Fundraising

In the run up to our World of Colour fashion show, our third years are organising a range of fundraising events – with all funds going to MND Scotland (http://www.mndscotland.org.uk)

This is the last official week of term at Aberdeen Business School so the students have some exciting events planned…

On Wednesday, there’s an Acoustic Night at Bar Below (on Aberdeen’s Belmont Street) and another fashion management bake sale on campus (we’re expecting lots more “slutty brownies” and cupcakes). On Thursday, the students will host a pub quiz at the RGU Union (with a special fashion round).

Another event which we’re particularly looking forward to is the “fashion night in” which will (of course) be hosted in the Fashion Place. The students have a Paris themed night planned which will include DVDs, cupcakes, mocktails, nail painting and hair styling. We hope to see all our fashionistas there! There will (of course) be lots of photos to follow…
