Courage on the Catwalk


Courage on the Catwalk 2017, proudly supported by Original 106 since the event’s inception in 2013.

The event, a major fundraiser for Friends of Anchor will be on Saturday, 6th & Sunday, 7th May 2017 and celebrates the beauty and bravery of North-east women who have faced a cancer diagnosis – past and present.

And new for 2017 “Brave” – The men folks in our area who have shown bravery in the face of their diagnosis, take to the catwalk on Friday night 5th May, at Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom.

Courage On The Catwalk

On the 6th & 7th May, 23 women from the North-east will make their modelling debut at Courage on the Catwalk 2017.

Now in its fifth year, Courage on the Catwalk is so much more than a fashion show. The event celebrates the sheer tenacity of women who have faced a cancer diagnosis- both past and present.

Friends of ANCHOR have once again teamed up with Gail Rose and her team at Premiere Productions UK to produce the professional catwalk show. The selected models are being professionally trained and styled ready for their runway appearance.


The ballroom tickets for all three live shows are sold out however there is balcony seating available. If you would like to cheer on the models as they strut their stuff, please contact the Friends of ANCHOR fundraising team on to book your seats.

Balcony tickets – £20pp – Includes a drink and foodie favour on arrival

Every penny raised from Courage on the Catwalk will go directly into helping make North-east cancer and haematology care the best it can be for those receiving treatment at the ANCHOR Unit, ARI.
