Brechin Beavers swimming Club has donated a portable nebulizer unit to the children’s ward at Stracathro Hospital. The unit is used in the treatment and relief of asthma sufferers, particularly children. The club members decided to make the donation after receiving a small cash award for their entry in the Round Table’s Pageant during Civic Week.
A record total of 611 people gave blood during the two days the east of Scotland Blood Transfusion Service visited Brechin. Only once before has the total exceeded 600 and a spokeswoman said the Brechin people had answered her plea for a good turnout.
