CLAN Cancer Support Gearing Up For Christmas Cracker

Places are still available for a leading cancer charity’s popular festive event.

CLAN Cancer Support’s Christmas Cracker ball has become a highlight in the north-east social calendar – and is one of the charity’s biggest fundraising events.

The seasonal event is being held on November 27 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).

More than £130,000 was raised last year as individuals and businesses showed their generosity towards CLAN.

Susan Crighton, CLAN fundraising manager, said: “The Christmas Cracker is one of our most important fundraising events, and we are all looking forward to it. Each year we are grateful for the support of the north-east public who always get behind us and turn out in droves to help make it the success it is.

“We hope this year will be no different and we are encouraging both companies and individuals to take up the remaining places for what will truly be a fantastic evening. We understand that the business climate is very challenging just now, however demand for our services continues against this backdrop. We have been taken aback by the generosity of people in the past and we hope we can rely on that kindness once more.”

The festive evening will include a drinks reception, followed by a three-course dinner, entertainment and dancing.
