CLAN total rises to £62,000

THE MONEY collected for the CLAN 1,2,3 appeal to build a new cancer centre in Aberdeen has now topped £62,000, according to appeal chairman John Telford.

Many big private donations, including £2,260 from a ruby wedding, have boosted the funds this week. Among other large donations were £1,500 from the Auld Skule recycling unit at Aith, £1,100 from a function at Bressay Public Hall and £650 from the Clydesdale Bank from fundraising which took place there.

Meanwhile the CLAN shop in the Toll Clock Shopping Centre has been doing well with takings of £1,150 this week. So much stuff has been donated to the cause that it had to be stored in an office in Commercial Street, and there was a one-off “store sale” there on Sunday which netted £760.

Snowball teas have been a great success and have been taking place all over Shetland. These brought in £1,511.

The exact total raised for the appeal stood at £62,123 on Wednesday.
