CLAN gears up for Aberdeen's biggest-ever Landmark Walk

CLAN gears up for Aberdeen's biggest-ever Landmark Walk

More than 500 walkers from across the north-east will step out in support of a leading cancer charity this weekend in Aberdeen.

CLAN Cancer Support’s annual Landmark Walk event takes place on Sunday, September 27 and will see participants tackle either a 7.8-mile or 13-mile route around the city.

Starting from Westburn Park at 9am, near the charity’s CLAN House headquarters, both routes take in a number of prominent features throughout the Granite City.

From King’s College and St Machar Cathedral to Marischal College, Duthie Park and the Beach Ballroom, expect the streets to be filled with a sea of purple.

Alongside the walk, the park will be transformed into an event village where family and friends can enjoy a range of entertainment including an inflatable assault course, surf simulator, face painting, tea cup rides and more.

And music will be provided by the Guarana Street Drummers, while a selection of food and drinks will also be available.

All funds raised from the day will go towards CLAN’s provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer throughout north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

Last year’s event raised an impressive £43,000 for the charity.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said: “The participant packs are being made and the signs are being put up as preparations for Sunday’s walk gather pace.

"We are really looking forward to what promises to be our biggest and best Landmark Walk yet."

Susan added: “Participants are coming from far and wide.

"Some have been affected by cancer directly, some have family and friends that have been affected whilst some simply want to take part in support of CLAN and the work it does across the north and north-east of Scotland.

"We are always taken aback by the level of support shown both by individuals and the business community towards our events and this year’s walk is no different. "

Walkers will leave in groups from Westburn Park from 9am onwards, whilst the event village will run from 9am to 5pm.
