Charity tea for Deeside teacher’s memory

A charity tea will be held in memory of a former Deeside teacher who died last year aged just 56.

A special afternoon tea will be held at the Raemoir Hotel on Sunday, November 3 in memory of the late Alison Chambers.

Tickets will be £15 and anyone who attends will be asked to bring a small donation for the raffle.

All proceeds will go to the Aberdeen Anchor Unit.

Ms Chambers sadly passed away close to Christmas 2012.

Well-known in the area, she had taught at Banchory Primary and Maryculter West, but passed after a battle with cancer during her tenure as Head Teacher of Torphins Primary.

The Chambers family have been stoic in their fundraising in Alison’s memory.

Her husband Bryan and son Andrew took on a marathon of a challenge and completed the Great North Run two weeks raising a large sum between them which will be donated to the Anchor Unit.

Daughter Jen is also involved with the organisation of the charity tea.

Tickets are available either from Dorothy Caie by calling: 01224 703413, at the Raemoir House Hotel or at the Deeside Piper at 1 Scott Skinner Square, Banchory.
