CLAN opens doors to North-east

Aberdeen headquartered cancer support charity, CLAN, is giving members of the public the chance to visit its current base before it moves to a new purpose built home.

CLAN Cancer Support is opening the doors of its Caroline Place centre during July and August, with the first event taking place on Saturday, July 9.

It is hoped the series of open events will give clients, supporters, volunteers and staff, both past and present, the opportunity to visit the current CLAN House before the charity moves to its new headquarters on Aberdeen’s Westburn Road in the autumn.

The charity which provides services in Peterhead, will host four open house events during the summer, where, as well as giving people the chance to tour the centre, information and photographs showing how the former Rosemount Church was converted into CLAN’s current centre as well as plans and photographs of the new centre will be on display.

Debbie Thomson, CLAN Chief Executive, feels it is important to ensure everyone can visit the centre before the charity moves.

She said: “The purpose of opening the centre is to give everyone who wishes to visit CLAN House the opportunity to do so in an informal manner. CLAN House has been a special place for so many people over the last 15 years, and the move will be an emotional time for many. Former clients, volunteers and staff will all be made very welcome as will members of the community.”
