The glitzy settings of the Chester Hotel in the west end of Aberdeen were the backdrop for a Scottish Association for Mental Health charity ball last Friday.

The Association’s Fundraiser Ball was attended by famous local faces including Sir Ian Wood and guests were also treated to a performance by the Chester Hotel Pipe Band as well as dinner and dancing.

The glamorous evening was designed in order to secure funding for SAMH, Scotland’s premier mental health charity, with the help of Asscher Concierge and GT Scotland.

GT Scotland provided the crop of supercars for the event, including multiple Aston Martins, Porsches and both a Lamborghini and Ferrari.

The expensive performance cars were joined by an ex-rally championship-winning 1976 Lancia Stratos and a hand-built Ariel Atom.

Pete Watt, the Director of GT Scotland, said: “I was really happy to support such a worthy cause. Personally, I have friends that struggle with their mental health.

“It was a great chance to get GT Scotland involved in an event, practically, that aimed to both highlight the challenges some people face in their lives and an event that raised money for this cause too.”

Aidan Blair Hassoun of Asscher Concierge also added his thanks to everyone that attended and supported the fundraising ball.

Guests of the event were also treated to speeches by Dr Sorcha Hume of the Archie Foundation and Colin Taylor the Lord Dean of Guild, amongst others.
