BRIMMOND Group, Kintore based hydraulic engineering business and Groundwater Lift Trucks, Stonehaven based material handling specialists have combined efforts to fundraise for the local charity, CLAN actively.

They are pleased to announce that between them they’ve raised £5000 for the charity.

CLAN Cancer Support is a well-established charity supporting people affected by cancer across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney, and Shetland.

NHS – National Services Scotland, reported that in 2016, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, there were 31,331 people diagnosed with cancer in Scotland. Over the last ten years, the risk of developing cancer in Scotland decreased by 6% for men but increased by 2% for women.

CLAN help people live with and beyond their or their loved one’s cancer diagnosis and improve the quality of life for all those who turn to CLAN for support.

CLAN Fundraising Team Manager, Steph McCann said: “We are extremely grateful to the Brimmond Group and Groundwater Lift Trucks for this generous donation. CLAN is funded entirely by donations and grants such as this, so the funds raised will go towards helping us to continue providing vital emotional and practical support to anyone affected by cancer.

“CLAN is a community-based organisation, so we are particularly thankful when donations are given by local businesses and their employees.”

“I am pleased to help provide funding to help CLAN support people affected by cancer,” said Alan Glennie, Technical Director – Brimmond Group. “Many of us have had family, friends and colleagues who have experienced or been impacted by cancer. It’s important to all of us at Brimmond Group to support not only the environment but other causes that affect us.”

“Everyone who is impacted by cancer must have a support network they can access. We hope that our donation will help CLAN to continue to deliver the superb support service,” said Barry Groundwater, Operations Director, Groundwater Lift Trucks.

Brimmond Group and Groundwater Lift Trucks have been working together for over 6 years. They realised, over a cup of coffee, that they could join forces to support this well-deserved charity.
