CLAN seeking volunteers in Buchan

CLAN Cancer Support is on the hunt for volunteers in the Peterhead area.

CLAN is appealing to potential volunteers to attend an informal drop-in session on Thursday, May 23, between 2pm to 4pm, within the Hot Spot building located on the town’s Kirk Street.

The session, hosted by the charity’s volunteer co-ordinator Jane Adams and Aberdeenshire area co-ordinator Ruth Cantrill, will give potential volunteers the chance to find out more about what opportunities are available and will provide information on how people can get involved with CLAN.

Jane Adams explained: “CLAN currently has more than 360 volunteers across the north-east of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland, giving in excess of 40,000 hours of help per year and with the centre in Peterhead going from strength to strength, it’s imperative that we increase the pool of volunteers that we currently have in this area.

“We are specifically looking for support volunteers to help in the centre on Wednesdays and Fridays, as well as volunteers to help with a wide variety of fundraising events that will take place across the area.

“Our volunteers are invaluable to the success of the charity and I urge anyone who is considering giving up some of their spare time, to come forward and help CLAN continue to provide a range of free services to anyone affected by cancer.”

For more information on the centre and the support services it will offer, please contact Aberdeenshire area co-ordinator Ruth Cantrill on 07720737500 or email
