Happy Birthday Carol
Congratulations Antony & Caroline Peskett
Caroline (nee Lees) married Antony Peskett last year and supported the charity by making a donation for Friends of ANCHOR pins and key rings which they used on their wedding day instead of traditional wedding favours. The generous couple and their wedding guests also donated a further £220, which they raised at their evening party with a game of 'heads & tails', with the winning prize dinner for two being donated by their wedding venue, Thainstone House Hotel, Inverurie.
Friends of ANCHOR would like to thank the happy couple once again and also wish them a very long and happy life together.
