N-east charity gear up for anniversary

North-east charity CLAN Cancer Support has issued an open invitation to join its 30th birthday celebrations.

CLAN will reach the milestone on September 25 and the programme for the weeks ahead will feature a series of fundraising and awareness events linked to the anniversary.

The showpiece event will be the inaugural Landmark Walk, taking in 30 iconic Aberdeen sites on September 22 as part of a 13-mile route, and registrations are currently being accepted.

Aberdeenshire events will include an afternoon tea at the Milton Brasserie on September 16 and at Newmachar Village Hall the following day as well as a darts exhibition at the White Horse Inn in Balmedie on September 28.
