Ruth Brown's successful appeal
Helensburgh woman Mrs Ruth Brown, wife of ex-Scotland manager Bobby Brown, took ill in 1978 with a form of blood cancer, and when she received treatment at Glasgow's Western Infirmary she discovered that there was an urgent need for a blood cell processor unit to assist diagnosis of rare blood diseases. So she set up the Ruth Brown Blood Cell Processor Fund in April 1982, and in a year she and Bobby raised over £16,000 to buy the unit and accessories. Sadly she died soon after presenting the unit.
