NEW PHOTOS : THE SUMMER JAM

Monday, July 21st, 2014

You can scroll through on the photos above to checkout some of the shots from the Skate For Palestine: ‘Summer Jam’ we threw last weekend with some good friends.

The day was a winner and really good for the charity Skatepal as we all helped them raise a little bit more than they had originally hoped for. So a huge thanks to everyone who was involved and everyone who came down to support and skate the day away.

Summer Jam

It was great day to see everyone come out bubbling. All the artists, DJ’s, skaters, music heads, some personal friends, spectators and some young families all helped keep the place busy from the jump off all the way through to the food running out and getting kicked out. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as us but if you missed your opportunity or just want to contribute still, you can alway just pop along to http://skatepal.co.uk and do your thing. And always remember… AssociatedMinds is for the Children. :)

You can see all the full set from the day along with all our other photos on our Flickr site, or on the AssociatedMinds Facebook page.
