Story

About Roger Reed, and about Friends of Anchor

Roger was known for his contribution to motor sport in Scotland for more than 40 years as a competitor and organiser, and MSA Steward, and for 26 years was Chairman of the East of Scotland Association of Car Clubs then of the Scottish Association of Car Clubs.  Roger also served on the MSA Regional Committee, and 19 years on the Off-Road Committee. 

Somehow he also found time to sing in two choirs and volunteer to run enterprise classes for  high school pupils. 

Roger was diagnosed with lung cancer in February 2015, and we lost him on 29th April 2016.

During his illness Roger and his wife Pat formed a great respect for the ANCHOR department of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, and in his memory we want to raise funds for the Friends of Anchor 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.

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.
