Clan lunch 161

Clan Cancer Support raised more than £9,500 at its latest fundraising event in Peterhead this weekend, with all proceeds supporting people affected by cancer in the local area.

The glamourous North Lunch event saw 100 guests enjoy a drinks reception, two course lunch and entertainment at The Palace Hotel on Prince Street, Peterhead on Saturday, February 11.

Individuals across the region took part in various games, auctions, and raffles, which contributed to the total raised on the day.   

The event, which was supported by many local businesses, was the charity’s first fundraising lunch in the area with money raised helping Clan to continue providing free wellbeing and support services to anyone affected by cancer across local communities in the north-east. 

Ruth McIntosh, Clan’s charity development manager said: “We’re delighted to have hosted the first Clan North Lunch at the Palace Hotel this year and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of our services and what we can offer in the region.

“It was fantastic to see so many people attend on Saturday and it’s a true testament to the generosity of our supporters that we raised over £9,500 on the day. This will help ensure we can continue to provide free support services to people affected by cancer across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland for years to come.”
