RAS recently missed out on its share of £34.5million in Scottish Government funding and is now fundraising to try and meet the shortfall. They have launched their One Reason campaign and are asking every woman in the North East to donate £1 to save the service. If you would like to make a donation, send a text to: 70070 stating the code: RASA11 followed by the amount you wish to donate. For example: RASA11 £10.
