CLASSIC car and motorcycle drivers are being encouraged to join a charity gastronomic drive.

The sixth annual CLAN Cancer Support Cavalcade on Saturday, June 29, will take in some of the finest food producers in the north-east of Scotland.

Setting off after breakfast at Threaplands, Lhanbryde, the route will drop in at Buckie seafood specialists Cluny Fish, Walkers Shortbread in Aberlour, the Cheese Pantry in Ardesier and Woodside Farm & Shop in Kinloss.

Lunch will be at the Grantown East Station restaurant and the tour will return to Elgin to enjoy a celebratory supper at the Sunninghill Hotel.

CLAN is keen to hear from owners of classic cars and motorcycles who would like to join the tour of which will raise awareness and much funds for CLAN Cancer Support.

Tracy Sellar, CLAN area coordinator said: "We always look forward to the Calvacade as it is great fun.

"So far this year, we already have a Spartan Roadster (kit car), a 1932 Lanchester 15/18, a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and an Austin A30, but we welcome every car or motorbike be they classic, vintage, kit or quirky.

“As we have some great food producers in the north-east, we decided it was a good idea to use our stops to enjoy local food.”

Located on Elgin High Street, CLAN is open five days per week offering support, information and a range of complementary therapies, with a weekly coffee morning.

CLAN services are also available in Buckie, Forres and Lossiemouth.

A minimum of £35 in sponsorship is requested from vehicle owners to enter the CLAN Cavalcade. Participants are required to pay for their own meals.

Drivers and navigators wishing to take part should visit www.clanhouse.org or call 01343 544132.
