A north-east charity has announced plans for a music-themed lunch event to raise funds for its cancer support services.
The CLAN Jukebox Lunch is the first of its kind where, after enjoying a glass of fizz, guests are asked to choose their favourite songs, which are then played on rotation throughout a fundraising afternoon.
In 2018, over 200 men and women attended the annual event, which raised £12,000 for CLAN’s cancer support services.
During the afternoon, there will be a raffle and auction, live entertainment and a two-course lunch provided by the hotel’s renowned chefs.
Guests will also be able to peruse a host of crafts, artworks, gifts and clothing items from local retailers.
Steph McCann, CLAN Cancer Support’s fundraising team manager, said: “The CLAN Lunch is one of CLAN’s most popular annual events and we are excited to be adding a new theme this year where guests can request their favourite songs.
“The Marcliffe Hotel and Spa is an invaluable supporter of CLAN and this event, with an even wider range of shopping stalls and entertainment, looks set to be the best yet.
“CLAN is enormously grateful to our sponsor, BP, which enables us to ensure that every penny raised during the event will come directly to CLAN, helping to support anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis in the heart of communities throughout north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
“The event is always very popular, so we would encourage people to book their place now to avoid missing out.”
The 2019 CLAN Jukebox Lunch, sponsored by BP, will take place on Friday May 10 at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa.
Tickets for the lunch, which will run from 11am to 4pm, are priced at £37 each and are available individually or as tables of 10.
They can be purchased by visiting www.clanhouse.org or via the charity’s fundraising team by calling 01224 647000 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
