Money Left to Hospital

STRANRAER'S Garrick Hospital and a local charity have each been left £156,000 by a Portpatrick widow. And even the elderly in the village have not been forgotten by the late Mrs Margaret Hamilton - she stipulated that £10,000, or £40 per person, be divided among them, with the only proviso the money is spent in Portpatrick.

Mrs Hamilton, who lived at Broomhill, Heugh Road, did not have any close family. She came to Portpatrick from the London area in the 1970s with her husband.

In her will, she left a bequest totalling £312,000 to be shared between the hospital's instrument fund and the Order of St John, of which her late husband was a member and which runs the Palliative Care Unit at Dalrymple Hospital.

She instructed that the money be spent on resources in Stranraer only.
