A leading north-east cancer support charity has asked businesses and members of the public to donate prizes for its largest fundraising event of the year.

CLAN Cancer Support’s annual Christmas Cracker event, The Nutcracker, will take place at the Ardoe House Hotel and Spa on the evening of Saturday, November 26.

The successful fundraiser, which sees individuals and businesses from across the north-east come together in support of the popular charity, includes a drinks reception, three-course dinner, entertainment and dancing. Last year’s event raised more than £83,000 and businesses and members of the public have been asked to donate gifts and prizes for fundraising activities on the night.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to our Christmas Cracker fundraising event from across the north-east.

“Throughout the night we will be running a tombola, a silent auction and a live auction to help us raise as much money as possible so we can continue to provide our free services to those who have been affected by cancer. From luxury ‘money can’t buy’ prizes to gifts of around £10 or more, we would be delighted to hear from businesses and members of the public who would like to donate a prize to help support the vital work we do for people across the north and north-east of Scotland.”
