Family flowers only please, but donations may be made to Roger's and Pat's preferred charity Friends of Anchor, via the following link https://www.justgiving.
(Please take notice of the "J" between "Roger" and "Reed", there is a similar page without the "J" which is for a different Roger who collects for a different charity).
If you donate through that link every penny of your donation will be passed on to the charity, and if you take care to tick the box to confirm that you are a UK tax payer, your donation will be increased by a quarter, representing a "Gift Aid" refund of basic rate tax and enhancing the benefit to the charity.
ANCHOR is the Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiotherapy, 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. Roger was treated there during his illness, and formed a great respect for their work.
Friends of ANCHOR is a registered charity number SC025332, and was set up to directly support the ANCHOR unit by committing long-term funding to the following three areas:
- Medical Equipment - Investing in the latest technology to continually develop and improve cancer diagnosis and treatment.
- Patient Wellbeing - Offering additional care, comfort and support to patients during their time at the ANCHOR Unit.
- Local Research - Funding leading clinicians’ research in Aberdeen to push the boundaries in the fight against cancer.
