Austria House Tirol hosted a special ‘Heart of the Alps’ evening on 31 July 2012. The focal point was the presentation of the cheque to Fiona Young (CEO Disability Snowsport UK) from the money raised during the Tirol cycle ride from Innsbruck to London. Crystal Ski’s Gordon Ritter and Jon Baud joined the Tirol cyclists during the final stage in the UK from Ramsgate to Tower Bridge helping to raise funds for DSUK.

A massive £15,634 was raised!

The evening was hosted by Mark Walker and also featured a wonderful gala dinner created by Alexander Fankhauser, music from the Alpin Banda and a comedy set by Ardal O’Hanlon of Father Ted fame.
