Get your skates on for cash giveaway
Roller Girls collect tokens
THIS roller group is hoping to skate their way to the top in the f a n t a s t i c Ev e n i n g Express CommunitEE Chest giveaway.
For the first time, adults can enter the contest to scoop some cash for their group, and the Granite City Roller Girls were quick to get their skates on and register.
The group formed in 2008 and compete with other groups in flat track roller derbies across the UK.
The sport consists of two teams of four defensive players and one jammer – the point scorer.
And member Carolyn MacKenzie is hoping the squad of 60 can score enough tokens to get their hands on some money.
The 23-year-old Dyce resident said: “I’ve told everybody about the tokens, so I hope we get a lot of support.
“There’s a lot of us from different areas, so if everybody’s families and friends get involved, we should be in with a shout.”
The Aberdeen squad would spend the cash on essential equipment.
Carolyn said: “It’s a really fun sport – it’s so addictive. We’ve had a massive intake in girls recently and the equipment can be expensive.”
Carolyn, who works as a veterinary nurse, said the extra money would help pay for uniforms and travelling to games.
Her group could be one of 12 lucky non-profit organisations to share in the Evening Express’ fantastic CommunitEE Chest giveaway.
So, if you think your club or team could do with a handy windfall, then it’s time to sign up.
The cash bonanza is for groups that rely on funding. To bid for money, all you have to do is register under one of four categories then collect special tokens printed in the Evening Express.
Four lucky kids’ groups will pick up £500, four will bag £750 and two groups will walk away with £1,000 each.
And for the first time this year, the Evening Express has opened up a special category for two adult groups to collect a £500 windfall.
Look out for tokens to be printed between April and June on Mondays and Wednesdays, with a special bonus token on Saturdays. To register simply fill in the form and send it to the address stated. You will then be sent a starter pack.
Groups have until Monday to sign up.
