CLAN Cancer Support seeking new volunteers

A north-east cancer support charity is appealing to those looking for a fresh challenge in 2014 as it announces 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, Moray, Orkney and Shetland as it continues its 30th year of providing a range of free support services to anyone affected by cancer.

Within Peterhead, CLAN is specifically looking for volunteers to help with a range of fundraising 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 be invaluable to the charity, helping to organise and host a number of fundraising and awareness events throughout the calendar year.

The charity is encouraging anyone who is interested in getting involved to come forward and express an interest.

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.

“In Peterhead, 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.”
