There was lots of big air (or should that be hot air) at the Daily
Mail ski show when a liberal sprinkling of industry enthusiasts turned
up on Tuesday to marvel at crazy antics and participate in a charity
While various lunatics practiced their 740 degree tail grabs on the ski
ramp, everyone got into the charitable swing of things - er, except
MediaVest's Jim Marshall, who contributed £3 to the raffle, while
everyone else donated a tenner. Rumbled.
Admiration was high for Jill Dolan of Media Link, who climbed into a
tiny air-filled ball, called a Nissan zorb, and hurled herself down the
ski ramp. "I could hear her screams all the way down," Guy Zitter, the
managing director of the Daily Mail, titters. Although he admits he
couldn't have done it himself. "With the size of my arse I don't think
I'd fit in," he laughs.
A charity auction finished off the fun, with the top prize, worth £2,500, going for a relative song at £800. Bargain.
