Aberdeen-based cancer charity CLAN have closed their Stonehaven office.

A spokesperson for CLAN Cancer Support confirmed that its Stonehaven base on Robert Street closed at the end of March and the charity is actively looking at ways to maintain a presence in the area.

She said: “We continually assess the provision of our services across the regions in which we work, in line with local requirements.

“The decision to relocate from our existing Stonehaven base has been taken as we strive to ensure our services are as accessible as possible to members of the public and responsive to need in the area. We are committed to providing cancer support services, free of charge, in the Stonehaven and Mearns area and are currently pursuing other opportunities which we will announce in due course. In the interim, existing clients can continue to access emotional support and other services through our bases in Aberdeen and Banchory with telephone support available by contacting CLAN House on (01224) 647000. From Thursday, April 27 we will also provide information and emotional support on a drop-in basis within the Invercarron Resource Centre on the last Thursday of each month from 1.30pm to 4pm.”

“A relaxation class will also be held at the centre from 2pm to 3pm on these days. Booking for this free class is available by contacting CLAN House.”
