Scots skate 53 hours straight to raise £25,000

Sometimes you have to push the boat out to get what you want, and that’s exactly what a crew of East Lothian skaters did in October to raise money for a new skatepark. With Livingston’s bowl 30 miles away, a bunch of fund raisers got together for a charity skate and managed to drum up £25,000 of cash towards a new park after skating constantly for 53 hours. Teams of three operated in shifts of 3 hours to make this work. Get out there and do it for your local scene.
