At Clan, we have our team of superheroes who make it their mission to support clients in any way they can. We spoke our new Volunteer Coordinator, Claire Mechie, to get to know one of the many superheroes who have the power to help.
Hi! I'm Claire, I was born and raised in Stonehaven and have spent most of my working life in and around Aberdeen. In my spare time, I enjoy seeing friends and spending time with my family. I am dog-Mum to our very large Goldendoodle, Yogi and we love taking him on lots of adventures! I also enjoy the occasional round of golf when the opportunity arises!
I wanted to work in a role with ‘real world’ impact. Having volunteered with Clan previously, I was aware of the vital work carried out to support those affected by cancer.
I am delighted to be part of such a great team, that carries out such important work throughout the North-East and beyond.
For a while now, I have wanted to work with a charitable organisation that makes a positive difference to the lives of others. When I saw the Volunteer Coordinator role advertised with Clan, I thought it would be an exciting new adventure and would allow me to expand upon my existing skills and expertise. I am really excited to be working with Clan’s team of Listening Support Volunteers and further developing the volunteer programme going forward.
I can bellydance – not something I do much of these days, but it’s great exercise!
When I was little, I really wanted to be a vet – but the animal allergy stopped that dream becoming a reality.
I am very much an animal-lover and would have a houseful of pets if I could! Yogi thankfully hasn’t caused me any allergic reactions to date!
I have a few heroes – namely my Grandparents and my Parents (sounds naff but it’s true!). They have been my role models and my biggest supporters in everything I’ve done.
