MILNGAVIE AND BEARSDEN HERALD FRIDAY 5 OCTOBER 1934

SIR HAROLD YARROW’S OFFER TO GLASGOW HOSPITAL
SHANDON HOME AND £10,000. STIPULATION OF NAME.

The Broomfield Convalescent Home for Mothers at Shandon has been presented to the Glasgow Royal Maternity and Women’s Hospital by Sir Harold Yarrow, and will be known in future as the Eda Yarrow Convalescent Home.

The late Lady Yarrow over 20 years ago became interested in the welfare of mothers and their babies and opened the Broomfield Convalescent Home. The home has been continuously in use since its inception, and has done inestimable good.

As Sir Harold Yarrow may, in his discretion, make use of the trust funds for any charitable object which he may select, he has offered to the Maternity Hospital Broomfield House and its grounds, together with the trust funds, which have a present market value of about £10,000.

The only provision made by Sir Harold Yarrow is that the home should in future be known as the Eda Yarrow Convalescent Home.

Lady Yarrow was closely associated with the maternity hospital as a director and member of the Ladies’ Committee for many years.
