An annual Freestyle Event staged at Manchester’s Chill Factore indoor snow slope raised nearly £14,000 for a local cancer charity.
Hosted by the Subvert Boardstore, the event was just the latest in a series that have so far raised a total of £41,000 donated to The Christie charity, based in Manchester, an internationally recognised cancer treatment centre.
The event featured freestyle sessions courtesy of The Booby Trap with riders treated to a live DJ set and Van’s Waffles as they enjoyed the unique SUBJAM session.
A private demo village was set up on the slope, allowing customers an exclusive trial of the latest season’s boards and apparel. Guests on the night were also invited to take part in the event raffle, where sponsors and local businesses generously donated prizes and gifts.
“We are thrilled with the success of the event. It was great to see so many riders enjoying the Freestyle Park at Chill Factore and testing out the new season’s collections before anyone else,” said Lorraine and Darren of Subvert, adding, “We couldn’t be happier with the total raised, it is incredible and we would like to thank everyone involved for their help and support.”
