PR Video Shares Tribute For Heroic Midwife

Social Care PR team help Armadale local pay tribute in PR Video

WE went along to interview 89-year-old Marion McAdam in a PR video to help pay a proud tribute to her heroic grandmother who died while saving a young child’s life exactly 100 years ago.

Marion McAdam, a customer at Bield’s Ochilview Court in Armadale, is the last remaining relative of Elizabeth Kerr who achieved local fame in 1919 when she came to the rescue of a three-year-old girl.

On the day of the accident, Elizabeth, who was a local midwife, was in a shop on Armadale’s Main Street when she noticed a little girl stepping onto the road as a car was approaching. Elizabeth instinctively ran from the shop and pushed the girl out of the car’s path but tragically, was killed herself.

To honour Mrs Kerr’s bravery, the close-knit mining community collected money to pay for a memorial that stands proudly at Armadale Cross. A grant was also received from the Carnegie Trust to mark the act of selfless heroism.

Our social care PR team helped commemorate the anniversary of her death and the efforts within the community to remember and celebrate her sacrifice. The local community also came together to commemorate the 100 year anniversary. s.

The video pans over the memorial dedicated to Mrs Kerr followed by an interview with Marion who shares some nice stories of her grandmother’s life. Saving not only the little girl but Marion’s father as well, the video casts a light on how much pride the family have towards Mrs Kerr and her remarkable bravery.
