A group made all the right moves to land its share of a cash giveaway.
Aberdeen Synchronised Ice Skating Club took home £1,000 after entering the Evening Express CommunitEE Chest last year.
The group used the funds to travel to Nottingham in January to compete in the British Synchronised Skating Championships 2018 and then again in February when members competed in the Scottish Championships.
Coach Sara Paterson, who won Coach of the Year at the Aberdeen Sports Awards 2016, said the funds were welcomed.
She added: “We were able to pay for transport for five teams to the British Champ-ionships.
“We put the money towards that and you can imagine with 70 members what the cost of transport could be.”
Since the club bagged the cash, the group has grown to 70, and now caters for members between age six and 72.
Sara added: “We have a diverse range and to see how much we have grown since we started in 2008 is amazing.”
The senior team, Team Zariba, was recently named Scottish champions for the sixth year.
“All our members have beaten personal bests, which is fantastic,” the coach said.
The ice skating club meets at Linx Ice Arena three times a week and is looking to put their best foot forward to collect as many tokens as they can.
Sara said: “We get very little funding and CommunitEE Chest is so important to us – especially because we have grown so much. So we’re excited to get started.”
Groups can start collecting tokens on September 10 and registration opens on Monday.
