Nicol of Skene were proud to have been one of the main sponsors of this weekends Glamour, Glitz and Bubbles event held at the Aberdeen Douglas Hotel. This annual event is held to raise funds for the RNLI and yesterday raised an incredible £30,500!

The event is organised by prolific local fundraiser Audrey Wood with sponsorship support from WoodPlc, Nicol of Skene, Apache North Sea, Aberness Care and Cala Homes.

Audrey Wood says: “After the tragedy of Flight 85N in 2009, when 16 men including my son, Stuart, were lost when their helicopter crashed on its way home from the Miller platform, I was astonished to discover that the crew on the lifeboats who went out to search were all volunteers. Soon afterwards, I vowed to dedicate my energy to raising funds to support the local crews.”

In an email to Nicol of Skene, Audrey added "May I take this opportunity in thanking you for your support and attendance at Glamour, Glitz and Bubbles on Saturday.  The day was absolutely fantastic and was enjoyed by all who attended. An amazing £30,500 was made on the day and without the support of companies like yourself this total could never be achievable.  The money will go to the RNLI stations that are patrolling our northeast shorelines."

Congratulations to Audrey and all of the the event organisers for donating such a huge amount and also for putting on an excellent afternoon of entertainment!
