A north-east cancer support charity has been handed a funding boost.
Banchory-based Leys Group have handed CLAN a £14,685 donation after a hillwalk in aid of a late colleague.
The business, which includes The Bancon Group, Leys Estate and North Banchory Company, organised the trek in memory of colleague Irene Steel, who was supported by the charity following her cancer diagnosis and sadly passed away this year.
Fellow Bancon staff, friends and members of Irene’s family joined together to tackle two Munros in one day – Driesh and Mayar.
