Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May 2018

Aberdeen Beach Ballroom

The model search is on for women to take part in Courage on the Catwalk 2018!

We’re looking for women from throughout the North-east who have faced the reality of a cancer diagnosis to apply to be part of the much-anticipated line-up of 24 models.

Each year the model line-ups have included a diverse group of women from all walks of life- from Fraserburgh to Banchory- ranging from 17 to 81 years old. The models selected for each event also represent various cancer types including breast, kidney, bowel and leukaemia, who are all at varying points in their cancer journey in terms of those undergoing treatment, living with cancer and survivors of many years. Since the event premiered in 2013, 120 women have stepped into the spotlight to share their stories to instil hope and inspire the people of the North-east.

We have once again teamed up with Premiere Productions UK to produce the professional catwalk show. In the months leading up to the event, the selected models will be trained for the catwalk and professionally styled ready to take to the runway at the live shows on Saturday, 12th and Sunday, 13th May 2018.

The event weekend will not only give the women the opportunity to enjoy a little pampering before they strut their stuff on the runway but vitally help to raise valued funds for Friends of ANCHOR.

Total E & P UK Limited have supported the event as Title sponsor since the event’s inception and will be returning to top spot in the sponsor line-up for the 6th year running.
