Celebrating our 140th Anniversary

Anchors 140 Challenge

Anchors have been getting involved with our 140th celebrations with a creative challenge, that has seen them design the number ‘140’ in the most creative way possible.

During October, Anchors across the UK have been taking on this challenge and thinking about how they can create the number 140. So far we have seen brilliant examples using a whole range of materials, including glow sticks, uniform, games equipment, cake, food bank donations, seashells, candles and more.

Check out our gallery below for some of our favourite entries so far.

This challenge is open throughout the whole of October 2023. By completing the challenge, Anchors are the eligible to apply for our ‘Anchors 140 Celebration Badge’.
