Fundraising event – Auchterarder Running Festival

A massive thank you to Aucherarder Running Festival, athletes raised £507.28 and gave most welcomed food donations.

We love that local events are sponsoring our charity 100% of these donations go directly to people using our services.

I’m delighted to say we ran two very successful initiatives to help Anchor House and particular thanks must go to Fiona Watt who has organised the running festival for the last 3 years! Fiona kindly agreed to send a request out to all competitors taking part in either the 10km or half marathon asking for any non-perishable food items and we also put on tea and coffee for the athletes and spectators and asked for any donation to go towards Anchor House

I cannot express enough thanks to the team at Gleneagles. Not a dry eye to be seen at Anchor.

Tree of Life

Today was a special day for us at Anchor House. We were donated this beautiful Steven Brown piece of art by Robert Wilson. Robert gave us this as he loves Steven Brown and has a big collection of prints in his home. He wanted to express his thanks to our support team. Robert is pictured here with Kirsty Goodwin one of our team.
