The Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy is a bit of a mouthful, that’s why it’s better known as ANCHOR. ANCHOR is a department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary which treats patients with all forms of cancer, leukaemia and benign blood disorders throughout the North-east of Scotland including Orkney and Shetland.
ANCHOR needs constant investment in technology and research to provide the best possible outcome for cancer diagnosis and treatment – this is where Friends of Anchor comes in.
Friends of ANCHOR was set up to raise funds for the ANCHOR unit to fund the following:
- Non-NHS funded equipment – ongoing investment in new equipment
- Patient wellbeing – Funding to provide additional support to patients during this difficult time
- Local research – Funding cancer research in Aberdeen
How Do Friends of Anchor raise funds?
Well, this is where you come in! Friends of Anchor work tirelessly to find ways to make their fundraising fun and rewarding, and Anchor Wipeout certainly achieves that!
