No, I’m not seven, I’m thirty seven, but I’ve never been to a football match before, and only twice set foot in a football stadium. Surprisingly both times were Pittodrie, once was very recently for the charity zip slide, and the other was way back in 1983 to watch the team return with the European Cup Winners Cup.
However as a wonderful gift some very important people at Aberdeen Football Club had given the family something that might add a little bit of cheer to the terrible past few weeks we’ve had.
On Saturday 16th my brother David went on a charity zip slide off of a stand in Pittodrie Football Club down to the other side of the pitch, it was all to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that has suddenly become very close to our family since our mother has been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer – you can read more about that in the original article.
I went along to capture the event on film so that we could prove to all the people who donated that he’d done it, and when he dropped down he persuaded me to jump just before he went for a second go. So we got photos of that too, and they’re all here as proof.
