A North-east cancer support charity is appealing to those looking for a fresh challenge as part of a recruitment drive to attract new volunteers.

CLAN Cancer Support is looking to increase its pool of volunteers at all of its bases across North-east Scotland as it continues its 30th year of providing a range of free support services to anyone affected by cancer.

In Fraserburgh, CLAN is specifically looking for volunteers to help with a range of fund-raising and awareness activities. The charity also requires a number of support volunteers to help provide services to those affected by cancer. Full training and continual support will be provided.

CLAN is also looking to form a Friends of CLAN group in both Peterhead and Fraserburgh. This group will help to organise and host a number of fund-raising and awareness events throughout the year.

The charity is encouraging anyone who is interested in getting involved to come forward.

Commenting, Jane Adams, CLAN’s volunteer co-ordinator, said: “CLAN’s pool of volunteers is the foundation which the charity is built upon and we are entirely grateful for those who continue to donate spare time towards the charity.

“We have a range of opportunities available across all our bases and we’re appealing to those who have perhaps decided they would like a fresh challenge this year, but are perhaps not sure what the challenge is yet, to come forward and learn more about what sort of thing you can get involved with.

“In Fraserburgh, we have a number of opportunities for support and events volunteers that would be perfect for those looking to meet new people alongside helping CLAN continue to provide free cancer support services in the town.”
