No pressies boost for Erskine Hospital

A CARNOUSTIE couple celebrating a milestone wedding anniversary have made a donation to a veterans’ hospital.

Angus and Betty Herron, who recently celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary, asked for donations in lieu of gifts so that they might put it to good use by donating it to the Erskine Hospital.

The couple presented a cheque of £600 to Gavin Wilson of the Royal British Legion Scotland, who said he would add the donation to the pot that the Carnoustie branch was collecting for the charity.

Angus completed his National Service as a motor mechanic with the RAF at Stranraer, and the pair recently held their diamond wedding celebration in the clubrooms of the Royal British Legion Scotland in Carnoustie.

The cheque will be presented along with the other collected donations to Erskine Hospital later in the year.
