Charity Night Brings In The Cash For CLAN


The masonic order of Knight Templars has raised funds for two local charities thanks to the support of its members.

The District Grand Prior of the District Grand Priory of Aberdeen, Banff & Kincardine, recently presented donations to CLAN Cancer Support and the Anchor Unit following a fundraising boxing night held in the DoubleTree Aberdeen Treetops Hotel on Friday 15th February.

Each organisation was presented with £4,500 from Rt. Em. Fr. Alister Burgess, District Grand Prior of the District Grand Priory of Aberdeen, Banff and Kincardine at their recent AGM in Peterhead on Saturday 2nd March.

Rt. Em.Fr. Alister said: “The District Grand Priory of Aberdeen Banff & Kincardine consider it a privilege and pleasure to have raised funds to donate to two very deserving local charities CLAN and Anchor Unit. We wish both charities every success for the future and have no doubt the donations will be put to good use in a positive manner by both charities”.

Receiving the cheque on behalf of CLAN Cancer Support was Angie Howarth, CLAN’s Area Services Coordinator, North Aberdeenshire and Stuart Cochrane, CLAN Cancer Support Vice-Chairman.

Angie said: “CLAN Cancer Support is extremely lucky to have the support and backing of many local groups and organisations throughout Aberdeenshire and beyond.

We are extremely grateful to receive this donation from the group which will help to ensure we can continue to support people affected by a cancer diagnosis in the heart of communities throughout north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.”
