After the success of the 2014 Fireworks Against Cancer event in aid of cancer charity UCAN, the spectacular is set to return to New Deer showground on Saturday, October 24.

Gates open at 4.30 with the fireworks lifting off at 8 pm. Last year’s event attracted more than 3,500 visitors from the region and with this year’s additional attractions the event is expected to raise even more funds for UCAN, the North East’s local Urological Cancer Charity.

One hundred precent of donations on the night will go to UCAN, the charity which spearheaded the acquisition of the first robotic surgery machine in Scotland now based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

This year the Fireworks are provided by supporters Fireworx Scotland, Masson-Glennie, Lovie Quarry Products and East Balthangie Caravan Park with contributions from Towns & Carnie.

The spectacular will be another complex display set to music in true son et lumiere style.

To add to the spectacle and to entertain the crowds before and after, the Aberdeen Fire Spinners will be on hand with their exciting display of fire spinning and fire eating. And there will be a guest celebrity making a special appearance on the night!

Fair rides, good food, confectionery, charity bake off, high value tombola and toys and gifts will also be available throughout the evening, making it a fun event for all the family.

One in five women and one in three men are diagnosed with urological cancers every year and UCAN provides valuable support for patients and their families dealing with this life threatening and debilitating disease.
