A north-east charity is encouraging local people to enjoy a sweet treat to celebrate the charity's 36th birthday

CLAN Cancer Support, which has bases across the north-east is asking people to create home bakes for friends and colleagues as part of its Go Purple week.

The annual birthday celebration is being held across the charity’s centres, from Shetland to Inverurie, with baking events taking place from the 22nd – 28th of September.

CLAN is asking its supporters to help celebrate its birthday by holding a bake sale, and the charity is also running a schools campaign where pupils are encouraged to wear purple for the day and donate £1 to CLAN.

CLAN has put together a fundraising kit to help bakers create an exciting sale including recipe ideas, posters and bunting.

Ruth McIntosh, CLAN fundraising coordinator said: “Go Purple is always a popular week with our supporters, and this year we hope as many people as possible will don their apron and create some tasty treats for friends and family.

“Everyone loves a good bake and shows like The Great British Bake Off has got many of us reaching for the spatula to create more interesting cakes and biscuits. By helping us celebrate the past 36 years, participants raise the funds and awareness needed to ensure we are here for the future milestones ahead.”
