Part of the Clan Logo FINAL

Clan Cancer Support was built by a small group of local heroes in 1983 and it’s local heroes who continue to support and sustain our charity today.

For our anniversary year, we’re launching a campaign to celebrate the heroes who made Clan the charity it is today and to encourage many others to come forward.

Entitled ‘Part of the Clan’, the campaign is a rallying call to individuals and businesses to help us achieve our £2m annual funding target, attract 100 new volunteers and engage more service users.

Anyone can be Part of the Clan. From organising a ceilidh, taking on a sponsored challenge, volunteering, choosing us as your charity partner or simply sharing your story about your experience with Clan, there are loads of ways to get involved.

We’d love you to join us and help us provide another 40 years of support to the people in your local area who need us. See below for more information on how you can be #PartoftheClan
