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

With the money raised we were able to buy Christmas presents for 44 of our service users. The money raised could not have came at a better time, we got to play Santa thanks to ARF efforts.
