A leading north-east charity has issued a final call for businesses and individuals to get involved with one of its most-popular events of the year.

CLAN Cancer Support’s annual fundraising lunch is set to take place at Ardoe House Hotel and Spa on Wednesday, April 20.

Individual tickets to attend the event, which has established itself as one of the charity’s most important of the year, are still up for grabs alongside the few last remaining table packages.

Alongside a two-course lunch, auction, raffle and a host of stalls for shopping, guests will also hear the inspirational story of Theresa Rollo, a CLAN client who herself was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.

Theresa will share some of her thoughts on her journey from throughout the last 10 years as well as how she has tried to give something back to the charity that helped her, completing a range of events in support of CLAN including the charity’s own Landmark Walk and the London Marathon.

All money raised from the lunch, which is again supported this year by BP, goes towards CLAN’s provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said:

“The CLAN lunch is a hugely important fundraising tool for us and always such a great event. Year-on-year we are delighted with the level of support shown towards it and we hope we can rely on that once more.

“This is a great opportunity for local businesses and individuals to make a tremendous difference to us by getting involved with the event. We are very flexible with options for support with both individual and table tickets available. All tickets sold ultimately help us raise money that will allow CLAN to continue the crucial work it carries out throughout the north-east.”

Those interested in purchasing a ticket for the event can contact CLAN’s fundraising team on 01224 647000 or email fundraising@clanhouse.org
