Ice Factor open day boosts charity fundraising effort
THE ANNUAL open day at Ice Factor Kinlochleven, raised £726 for charities, including Down’s Syndrome Scotland.
The proceeds will also help pay for Santa's annual visit to meet village children.
Around 200 people attended the open day on Saturday June 24 when attractions included ice- climbing, stalls, children’s face painting and a raffle.
Kay McDuff from Kinlochleven and her 13-year- old son Mark, who has Down’s syndrome, is a leading light in the fundraising drive for Down’s Syndrome Scotland.
Kay said: ‘Thanks to a huge community-led effort, we raised much-needed funds for Down’s Syndrome Scotland and a number of other charities.’
Tracey Smith, operations director at Ice Factor Kinlochleven, said: ‘The open day gives local charities the opportunity to come together to raise funds for causes close to their heart. Ice Factor is proud that since January this year, £2,186 has been raised for worthwhile causes, including Down’s Syndrome Scotland.’
