Over £1,000 was handed over to charity in memory of three Arbroath brothers by a tireless fund-raiser.

Brenda Ross donated £1,108 to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign on Thursday in tribute to former Angus College student Daniel Mathieson and his brothers John and James, who all suffered from Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

For years, Brenda, who works as a personnel administrator at the Dundee and Angus College in Arbroath has been known for her tireless fundraising for charities such as the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland.

But this time she handed over the cash to the muscular dystrophy charity, which is also close to her heart, as she too has been affected by the condition.

Brenda, who has been awarded an MBE, organised for more than 70 friends and colleagues to join her for a birthday party at the Royal British Legion Scotland in Arbroath and invited Dundee comedian/singer, Tam Harris to entertain them.

Brenda said: “The death of Daniel during last summer was a huge blow to many of us who knew the three brothers.

“All of them had spent time at the College and they had been such a positive presence, I felt it was time to do something to honour their memory.”

“It was a wonderful night and a huge thanks has to go to all everyone who supported me in my fund-raising efforts.”
