How you can help

At the heart of Friends of ANCHOR is a deep sense of community, with so many united for a cause that is deeply personal to so many.

This year, as we embark on the second phase of our ANCHORED Together appeal, we’re asking you to come alongside us to help us reach our goal of £2m. It’s our most ambitious campaign to date - and we have just two years to raise the funds. 

Download our Get Involved booklet, which is filled with ideas on how you can put your weight behind the appeal. We hope you’ll have a flash of inspiration as you read about The ANCHOR Centre and the difference it will make to this generation and generations to come. 

Don't forget that every penny raised or donated goes directly to the cause as the charity’s operating costs are fully funded by Balmoral Group, freeing up every penny of every pound to do great work. 


Get involved

ANCHOR with us to help us reach our £2m target before 2023.
