The second ‘Think Pink’ Day at MACBI community hub in Mintlaw proved to be a huge success - with £6,000 raised for charity.

Locals Jill Moir, Rachael Hay and Angie Urquhart organised the event, which ran over the weekend September 30 to October 2.

There was a definite health theme running throughout the weekend, with various different exercise classes held at the centre.

These included Boogie Bounce, Clubbercise, Spinning and Kettle Bell Combat - all well suppported by those who took up the challenge.

Meanwhile, a five-a-side football tournament also proved popular as did the gruelling a 60-mile bike ride.

Youngsters weren’t forgotten, with bouncy castles, face painting and crafts kept them all amused throughout the weekend.

All money raised from the event will be donated to Breast Cancer Research at the Aberdeen University Trust.

The organisers would like to express thanks to all the local businesses who gave dconations, raffle prizes or food for the mobile catering.

They also gave thanks to the local community who donated and attended the event.

“It was a fantastic day and this is the second year we have organised the event,” explained Jill.
