Gordon Harkin - Cancer Support Scotland

About Gordon Harkin - Cancer Support Scotland

Gordon has been our volunteer gardener here at Cancer Support Scotland since 2018. At least 1 day a week, he looks after the gardens that surround our beautiful Calman Centre, ensuring our little cancer support centre is a comforting, welcoming place for those that need us. Our key aim as a charity is to provide wellbeing support for anyone affected by cancer throughout Scotland, and Gordon has played a crucial role over the years by sweeping, clearing, weeding, and planting to ensure our centre provides a calming sanctuary on the grounds of a very busy cancer hospital.
