CLAN cancer charity partner Loganair is collecting on 700 flights this week to raise funds for the charity.

According to the airline, passengers have been “generously donating” to CLAN Cancer Support which is 35 years old this month.

Flight crews will be providing onboard collection buckets on over 700 flights across Loganair’s network until Sunday 9 September, as part of the charity’s GO PURPLE campaign marking its anniversary.

Last year Loganair announced a partnership with the Aberdeen-based charity which operates support and wellbeing centres located across north east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

CLAN fundraising co-ordinator Ruth McIntosh said: “2018 is a major milestone for the charity, celebrating our 35th birthday which means 35 years of providing support and information for people affected by a cancer diagnosis.

“This campaign draws attention to these achievements while also providing an opportunity for communities to get involved.”

Loganair commercial director Kay Ryan said: “We’ve been working closely with CLAN for a year now, supporting the important work they do across the highlands and islands.”
