We support many of the events which are sponsored by Aberdeen Standard Investments across Scotland and none more enthusiastically than the Melrose Sevens.
But it’s not just the on-the-pitch action which we highlight. Demonstrating the economic benefit of such events to the local economy – whether it be the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open or the Aberdeen Standard Investments Boat Race – is one of our key objectives.
Seven was a lucky number for RGU University in 2016 as it won the Aberdeen Asset Management Boat Race in a record time of seven minutes and 38.6 seconds …. Rowing to the beat of our “Rolling In The Deep” Adele spoof video “Rowing on The Dee” may have helped! See it here:
“It’s fantastic to see a proud city tradition go hand in hand with a great sense of humour. The students who have come up with Adele parody song “Rowing On The Dee” ahead of Saturday’s boat race clearly had a ball making the video. And they clearly want us all to have a ball by joining in the fun on this big day in the city’s calendar. Let’s do our bit and turn out to cheer them on – and say hello from both sides of the Dee.” Evening Express editorial comment.
