SuperCLAN Celebrates Fundraising Milestone

Super CLAN

A popular event which featured some of the most rare and unique cars in the world has raised thousands of pounds for a leading north-east cancer support charity.

A spectacular collection of supercars took part in the SuperCLAN event this summer which has raised more than £14,000 for CLAN Cancer Support.

More than 50 exotic supercars drove from the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen to the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown and back on Sunday, July 8 where they were greeted by over 300 car enthusiasts who had gathered at the Marcliffe to see the vehicles in action.

The field of cars included, a Ferrari F12, GT2RS, Lamborghini Huracan Performance, McLaren 720s and a Bugatti Veyron. Members of the public could view the cars and give a donation to CLAN on the day.

Since it was first held in 2011, SuperCLAN has raised more than £73,000 for CLAN which has helped the organisation to provide free support services to north-east residents who have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.

Ross Gatt, founder of SuperCLAN, is proud to organise the event in aid of CLAN Cancer Support. This year it was sponsored by Aston Martin Edinburgh, Cavitas Energy, Jamieson & Carry, Bairds Pharmacy, Eserve International, and Ewens Of Cornhill Ltd.

He said: “SuperCLAN was an overwhelming success this summer and to have raised £14,000 for CLAN is a great achievement.

“The event has always been well supported by members of the public, who turned out in their hundreds again this year, and we also had the largest number of requests to participate in the drive since we began, from across the country, which is very promising for the future of the event.

“SuperCLAN has grown over the years and is now a regular fixture in the north-east motoring calendar, and we’re delighted to donate funds to CLAN Cancer Support which does so much for so many in the north-east of Scotland and beyond.”

Steph McCann, CLAN Cancer Support fundraising team manager, said: “Ross and his team have done a great job with SuperCLAN again this year. The event was a big success and it was great to see so many car enthusiasts enjoying a fantastic afternoon at Marcliffe.

“Continued support for events such as SuperCLAN make a big difference to us and we’d like to thank everyone who took part on the day or gave a donation to see the cars.

“We were delighted the final fundraising total was £14,000 and these funds will help a lot of people in the north-east of Scotland, and in Orkney and Shetland, who have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.”
