This year, Friends of ANCHOR is celebrating 20 years of providing support to cancer and haematology patients throughout the North-east of Scotland.
Our milestone anniversary project for the 'Dream Big Campaign' will see the placement of 20 large anchor sculptures around Aberdeen city and shire and as far afield as Moray, Orkney and Shetland, which all fall within the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s ANCHOR Unit catchment area.
Our funding focus:
The latest news, press releases and blog posts from Friends of ANCHOR.
From fundraisers and events to the latest wellbeing initiatives, medical equipment and leading research that is being funded for cancer and haematology patients in the North-east.
If you would like to be kept in the loop with our more regular day-to-day activity you can connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
