A leading north-east cancer support charity will officially open the doors of its new base in Peterhead this weekend with a special launch event.

CLAN Cancer Support has moved into new premises at 1 Carter’s Close, having previously been based within The Hot Spot on Kirk Street which is now undergoing renovation work.

As part of the new opening, CLAN is inviting locals for a glimpse of the new centre on Friday, April 29, from 10am to 2pm. The event is open to all and will give people a chance to find out more about CLAN’s support and wellbeing provision in the town as well as information on local volunteering opportunities.

Members of the CLAN team in Peterhead will also be available for help and advice, with refreshments and healthy snacks available for all those who attend.

The charity has altered its service days in Peterhead and will now provide its complimentary therapies from the new base every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am to 4pm by appointment only. Its support and wellbeing service will be available on a Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 4pm with no appointment necessary.

Angie Christie, CLAN’s North Aberdeenshire area co-ordinator, said: “CLAN has established itself in Peterhead over the last couple of years and there is a real feeling that the charity is about to embark on an exciting new chapter within the town itself.”
