On Sunday the 4th December, SNO!zone, ASDA and Disability Snowsport UK in Milton Keynes united for a festive fundraiser to raise money for DSUK.
In the frosty morning hours, 20 tonnes of snow was delivered to the largest ASDA store in Europe to be shaped by Park Shaper extraordinaires Thom Boddington, Jack Falconer, Nick Lark and Jimmy Cartlidge into ASDA’s very first outdoor sledging zone!
Shoppers were initially a little tentative as the icy winds and freezing temperatures meant parents were not keen to hang around for their little ones to slide down the slippery slope.
As the day went on, however, word spread and soon there was a queue winding back into the MK Dons car park!
A really great £77.49 was raised by the Park Shapers and volunteers.
Thank you to all of the SNO!zone team and Adele Johnson for making this happen, and thanks also to our wonderful volunteers, Julie and Mark Baldwin, David Thomas, Paul Gadd, Andy Wright, Adrian Miller, and Mark Foster for his incredible enthusiasm!
