An Aberdeen cancer charity is delighted after landing a new sponsor for its fundraising walk.
Apache has signed up as the headline sponsor for CLAN at the Castle at Crathes Castle next month.
The event is in its second year and has three routes for walkers to choose from – 1.4, 5.7 and 12.3-mile walks.
Employees from the firm will also put on their walking shoes to take part.
Fiona Fernie, head of income generation at the charity, said money raised would help people who had received a cancer diagnosis.
She said: “We cannot thank the team at Apache enough for their continued support and enthusiasm to be a part of CLAN at the Castle.
“The event is a great way to get out there and enjoy some of the fantastic countryside we have here in Deeside and it’s also a great way to promote and encourage physical activity for people of all ages and fitness.
“Everything raised on the day will help to support CLAN and ensure we can continue to be there for people affected by a cancer diagnosis, not only in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, but throughout Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
“There is still time to join the Apache team by signing up as a corporate team, as individuals or with friends and family. It’s a great day out for everyone.”
A family fun day including inflatables, children’s activities and catering, will also be on offer at the castle on September 2 from 10am.
David Rendall, chairman of Apache’s charity and community outreach committee, said: “Apache is delighted to be supporting this great event.
“Not only will this benefit people suffering serious illness – it’s an opportunity for our staff and the community to get involved.”
