Clan is helping you to get Christmas ready with their new online auction! From 18th November until 6th December, you will have the opportunity to bid on over 60 items, including an exclusive experience for four people at The Macallan Estate worth £3,000.
Clan has had to postpone or cancel their major fundraising events this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and their income has dropped significantly. Despite this, the charity has continued to be a lifeline for many people facing a cancer diagnosis by launching a telephone support service, counselling sessions, offering new online services and continuing to support their younger clients and families. They have also ensured that people who live out with Aberdeen can attend cancer treatment at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by providing transport and a safe and comfortable place to stay at their Clan Haven.
Clan's Head of Income Generation and Business Development, Fiona Fernie, said: “We are delighted to launch our Clan Online Auction today! We have a fantastic array of items to suit everyone and what better way to start your Christmas shopping while helping to support a local charity? Our star item is an experience for four people at The Macallan Estate where you will be treated to an exclusive, behind the scenes tour, including lunch with paired wines as well as a very special tasting of some of their finest whiskies.”
Clan has supported communities throughout the north-east for over 37 years and have continued to help people through the pandemic. Since March they have provided over 3,500 support sessions, 620 professional counselling sessions and 2,000 support calls for people affected by a cancer diagnosis.
Fiona said, “Our wellbeing centres, Clan Haven, transport and telephone support services continue to be there for people affected by a cancer diagnosis across the North of Scotland. This year has been challenging for us all, but especially for those facing a cancer diagnosis. Imagine being feeling isolated from loved ones while shielding, receiving a cancer diagnosis over the phone during lockdown or the additional complications of getting treatment during the pandemic. Our support is more vital than ever, and by supporting events like our online auction, you will allow us to be here for people facing a cancer diagnosis now and in the years to come.
