Clan celebrations set to come to Cullen
A CANCER charity is hosting an open afternoon at the Royal Oak Hotel in Cullen this week to celebrate its birthday.
Clan Cancer Support, which has bases across the north-east, is inviting local people to come along to its Go Purple for Clan event this Friday from 1pm-4pm at the Royal Oak Hotel in the village.
The birthday celebration is being held across the charity’s centres, from Shetland to Inverurie, with events taking place from September 22-28. The afternoon will include home bakes and a raffle to raise funds for Clan Cancer Support.
In addition to a centre on Elgin’s High Street, Clan provides support services in Buckie, Forres and Lossiemouth. As well as craft groups and coffee mornings, Clan Elgin hosts ladies’ and men’s support groups, along with relaxation and mindfulness sessions.
Tracy Sellar, Clan services area manager, said: “We are delighted to invite the people of Moray and surrounding areas to come and celebrate our birthday.
"We will have some lovely home bakes on offer, as well as tea and coffee.
“Clan offers support for anyone who is affected by cancer, whether that be someone who has a cancer diagnosis, or their friends or family members. We provide emotional and practical support, and wellbeing services to help people cope with the effects of a serious illness.
“We encourage everyone to come along to our birthday event at the Royal Oak to help support our work and see for themselves the services we have on offer.”
Tickets for Clan Elgin’s open afternoon are £3 each, available on the door or at the Royal Oak Hotel, Cullen.
