Cavalcade drives fund-raising success for Clan

CLASSIC cars, fund-raising and gastro delights came together to make a winning recipe when cancer charity Clan held their sixth annual Support Cavalcade.

Vehicles from years gone past gathered at Threaplands nursery on Saturday, June 29 for the off after breakfast on a gastronomic drive taking in some of the finest food producers in the north-east of Scotland.

One of those delighted with the event was Clan area co-ordinator Tray Sellar.

She said: "It was an excellent day, a big thank you to everyone who turned out.

"We hope to have raised over £3000 from the cavalcade but are still waiting for all the money to come before we have a final total."

The event's route took drivers from Lhanbryde on a trip that included stops at Buckie's Cluny Fish, Walkers Shortbread in Aberlour, the Cheese Pantry, home to award-winning organic cheeses, and Woodside Farm and Shop in Kinloss.

Lunch was had at the Grantown East Station restaurant and the tour returned to Elgin to enjoy a celebratory supper at the Sunninghill Hotel.
