A cancer charity is introducing a new support group to its programme of events at one of its north-east bases.
CLAN Cancer Support will hold a creative writing group on the first and last Friday of each month from 2 to 3pm at its wellbeing and support centre in Banchory’s Posties Walk.
The first group will welcome poet and author Gillian Shearer as guest speaker.
Helen Hasnip, CLAN Cancer Support’s Deeside area co-ordinator, said: “We are delighted to welcome Gillian to our first creative writing group in Banchory where she will share with us her experiences of writing and poetry.
“This relaxed and informal group aims to give individuals the chance to develop a new skill or hobby, whilst meeting people who may find themselves in a similar situation. Space is limited so I would urge anyone interested in attending to get in touch to reserve their place.”
