A collection of vintage and classic cars which passed through Inverurie has raised almost £3000 for a leading North-east charity.

Seventeen cars and a motorbike took part in the tour across CLAN Cancer Support’s centres in a bid to raise awareness of the charity’s vital work carried out across the region.

The event is on track to raise nearly £3,000 for CLAN which will go towards the charity’s provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer across the North and North-east of Scotland.

CLAN’s area services co-ordinator, Gemma Powell, said: “Having the CLAN cavalcade pass through Inverurie really was something and the event has definitely got people within the town speaking about CLAN; it’s been a great awareness raiser for the charity.

“I’d like to thank the drivers and organisers of the event for supporting CLAN in Inverurie. Thanks too to ANM Group Ltd who provided a welcome pit stop at Thainstone - coffee and butteries all round.”

Historic Wheels Club member Ron Billing - one of those behind the CLAN Cavalcade - added: “We had everything from an Aston Martin to a Ferrari and AC Cobra taking part in the drive and I’d like to thank everyone who was involved in helping the event come together.

“CLAN does a great deal of good work across the communities we visited and if we’ve helped raise awareness of this, as well as making a nice sum for the charity, then we’ve done what we set out to achieve.”
