SKIN DEEP Music School hosted its annual Fun Day at the Station Hotel last week, with parents and pupils invited to a display of musical talent.

Pupils enthralled visitors with a selection of music on different instruments, with a pipe band drummer, fiddle band and magician joining the entertainment.

Proceeds of the day’s activities have been put towards Ellon Rotary’s Shelterbox appeal, which sees packages containing food, shelter and everyday essentials sent out to disaster zones across the world.

Jayne Brown, who co-owns Skin Deep with husband Ian, said: “The Fun Day was tremendous. We had a really good turn out - over 200 people attended, and Dorothy at the Station Hotel was very accommodating.

“There was a brilliant atmosphere and out of the fun came £100 to donate towards another Shelterbox.”

Parent Nick Langan told the Times: “Once again Ian and Jayne excelled themselves, not only by putting on a great family fun concert of talented youngsters and adults from Ellon and the surrounding area, but by entertaining the crowd with a magician and world famous pipe band drummer.”

Ellon Rotary Club’s Gary Macalister thanked the music school for their donation.

“We are delighted that Skin Deep has elected to support Shelterbox with the proceeds from its recent fun day,” he said.

“Skin Deep has been involved with the Rotary Club of Ellon’s Shelterbox appeal since the club held a sleepover in Neil Ross Square in January, with Skin Deep providing facilities for the Rotarians through the night.”
