A cavalcade of vintage and classic cars made its way through Deeside last week raising funds and awareness for CLAN.

Seventeen cars and a motorbike from yesteryear took part in a tour of a number of CLAN Cancer Support’s centres throughout the north-east of Scotland to help raise awareness of the charity’s bases across the region.

The fleet of cars set off from Elgin before passing through Banchory and ending the day at CLAN’s centre in Ballater.

The event attracted vintage car enthusiasts from across Scotland and is on course to raise almost £3000 for CLAN.

This money will go towards the charity’s provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer across the north and north-east of Scotland.

Gemma Powell, CLAN’s area services co-ordinator, was delighted to see the cars make their way through Deeside.

She said: “Having the CLAN cavalcade pass through both Banchory and Ballater really was something and the event has definitely got people within the area speaking about CLAN; it’s been a great awareness raiser for the charity.

“I’d like to thank the drivers and organisers of the event for supporting CLAN. It’s support like this that really does enable the charity to continue to offer its services right here in the heart of Deeside.”

All involved enjoyed a fantastic day with a huge and diverse range of vehicles taking part.
