Gordon Brown - Scottish Actor Fronting Fundraising Drive In Late Daughter's Memory

Scottish actor Gordon Brown is launching a fundraising drive to help build a respite home in honour of his late daughter.

Brown, who starred in Drive alongside Ryan Gosling and in Bronson with Tom Hardy, was left heartbroken after his daughter Eilidh died aged 15 from a rare form of cancer in 2010.

While she was alive, Brown and his wife took their child to a holiday home for cancer sufferers in Scotland, and it inspired him to set up similar project.

He has requested planning permission on a property in Stirling, and has already raised $325,000 (£215,000), but needs more donations to keep the centre running over the coming years.

The actor says, "The fundraising process is ongoing and even once the home is open it will take about £30,000 to keep it going. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who can help us get there."
