Making Memories

Memories are precious and irreplaceable, which is what our Making Memories initiative is founded on - creating something special that will last a lifetime.

Our funding is available for people who may be receiving end of life care for an oncology or haematology illness, who reside in the North-east of Scotland or Northern Isles.

Each experience we create is bespoke and specially crafted around each individual’s hopes and desires for their memory.

Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience or quality time with friends and family, Friends of ANCHOR is on hand to organise all the elements involved in creating a lasting memory.

Applications are reviewed by a clinical panel before they can be approved. To request an application for yourself or a loved one, please fill out the form below and a member of the team will be in touch soon.

For any queries, please call 01224 859222, speak to a member of our Wellbeing Team in the hospital, or email us using the button below.
