A cancer charity is marking a year since it moved into its north-east base with a celebratory event.
Clan’s dedicated support centre at the Crimond Medical and Community Hub was officially opened in March 2018.
The village facility offers drop-in sessions, free advice and information to anyone affected by cancer, including friends, family and carers.
It has rooms for one-to-one support like counselling, help for children, teenagers and families, a library and information service and access to complementary therapies.
To mark its first birthday Clan Crimond will be hosting an open day on Friday, March, 8.
Angie Howarth, Clan’s area coordinator for north Aberdeenshire, said the last 12 months have been wonderful.
She said: “The last year has been a tremendous one for Clan in Crimond.
“We have been working hard to bring modern, accessible services to bases across the north-east, enabling those in more rural communities to find support without having to make long journeys.
“The community and medical services hub is an ideal location for Clan’s services and we look forward to continuing to work together for the benefit of people in the region.”
Conrad Ritchie, chairman of the Crimond Charitable Trust which operates the community centre, said: “The services provided by Clan in Crimond are exceptional and it has been a pleasure to be involved in the development of such a crucial community resource.
“The Clan staff and volunteers ensure anyone affected by cancer, be they patients, relatives or friends, are always welcomed by a friendly face and relaxing therapies which can help to reduce pain or stress.”
