AN ARBROATH man, David Ritchie, ran in the Glasgow Marathon in 1986 and realised the magnificent sum of £200 for Arbroath Infirmary through sponsorship.

In February of the following year he handed over donations of £100 each to the casualty and maternity departments.

Pictured at the informal presentation ceremony are, from left - Staff Midwife Elizabeth Ritchie, Sister Sheila Grant, Sister Ruth Smith, Mr Ritchie, Sister Joan Roft, Mrs Karen Ritchie and Mrs Jean Whyte, nursing officer.

The money was used to purchase special cushions and resuscitation equipment.
