Congratulations Simone & Martyn!
Congratulations to Simone Thorpe who married Martyn Shepherd on Friday 27 August 2010 at Ardoe
House Hotel, Blairs, Aberdeenshire. Their generous wedding guests contributed to a collection at the
couple's reception and raised £245.45 for Friends of ANCHOR. They chose to support the charity as
Simone Mum is receiving treatment at the ANCHOR unit at present. Thank you to everyone who
donated and our very best wishes to the new Mr & Mrs Shepherd.

PHS gives a helping hand
Thank you to Carol & Richard Smith, Ian Lindsay and all the staff members at PHS Washrooms, in Dyce, Aberdeen who helped to raise £227.00 for Friends of ANCHOR. The money was raised from a raffle which was held earlier in the summer. The organisers, Carol and Richard would like to thank local businesses and companies in Aberdeen who generously donated prizes for the raffle. Jane & David Hipsen also contributed to the total in loving memory of their beloved daughter, Amanda. Friends of ANCHOR would like to thank everyone who helped raise this welcomed donation.
Congratulations Lynn & David
Lynn Hay married David Jex on Saturday 31 July 2010 at Thainstone House Hotel, Inverurie.
The happy couple came to the Friends of ANCHOR office and made a generous donation when
they purchased Friends of ANCHOR key rings and pin badges which they used as favors for
their guests at their wedding reception. The charity would like to thank them both for their
support and wish them a very happy future together.

Friends unite to raise £18,500
A group of friends, Jacqui Campbell, Gail Harrison and Karen Stevenson have raised £18,500 for Friends of ANCHOR. They started fundraising last November 2009 in support of Jacqui's sister, Fiona, who was diagnosed with breast cancer 12 months previously. Very sadly Fiona passed away on July 15 after a brave battle. Fiona was involved in some of the fund raising activites and she was delighted the group had reached and exceeded their £10,000 target. Jacqui, Gail and Karen walked the West Highland Way earlier this year (2010) and held a variety of events including coffee mornings and bake sales. Two other friends, Alan Fergusson and Alan Flint also helped boost the total by running the Balmoral 10K race.
Friends of ANCHOR would like to thank Jacqui, Gail and Karen for their tremendous hard work and support in raising this phenomenal amount. We would also like to thank the two Alans and everyone involved in organising, and running the events as well as all the very generous sponsors and supporters.
