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!
