More than 80 items are available; including an impact print created by Aberdeen Football Club defender Angus Macdonald – donated by Signed Memorabilia by Tony Stott, weekend hire of a Porsche – provided by Porsche Aberdeen and a signed Coldplay Parachute vinyl record, with mystery items yet to be announced.    


Starting bids range from £20 for a one to one make up lesson at Bio Wellness to £800 for the opportunity to host your own corporate golf day at Moray Golf Club.  

Bidders have until 11pm on Saturday, September 30, to place an offer on the items with all proceeds going towards providing vital services for people affected by cancer in the north-east, Moray, Shetland and Orkney.    


Ruth McIntosh, Clan’s charity development manager, said: “We have a brilliant selection of items in this year’s auction for every budget. It’s the perfect opportunity to bag a unique experience or gift and support local people impacted by a cancer diagnosis.   


“We’d like to thank everyone who has donated auction items this year and would urge people to keep their eyes peeled for new items which will be uploaded as we get closer to the event – the countdown is on!”  

Clan Cancer Support will roll out the red carpet for its event at the Beach Ballroom on Saturday, September 30, with all proceeds going towards the provision of vital cancer support services for people affected by cancer in the north-east, Moray, Shetland and Orkney.    

The event will encourage guests to embrace their inner child and enjoy a twist on party classics including a ball pit photobooth, birthday cake and alcoholic jelly alongside a live band playing chart-topping tracks from throughout the charity’s history.   

Guests will enjoy a three-course meal and drinks reception and have the opportunity to win raffles prizes and bid for exclusive auction items.
