Duncan paid a visit to the Lily Centre which provides support for local people battling breast cancer, to meet with some of the women and men who rely on the charity.
The centre is run by women who have themselves experienced breast cancer and now give their time voluntarily to provide a pleasant environment for other people battling the disease to meet and gain emotional and physical support.
The Lily Centre is open every Monday and Wednesday between 10am and 4pm and offers local people dealing with breast cancer the opportunity to talk though their experiences and access a host of activities and key services, including lymphatic drainage, beauty therapy, homeopathy, counselling, hairdressing, a gym and keep fit classes and lots of fun, social events.
Duncan, who is a patron of the Lily Centre, said: “Charities like the Lily Centre are so important for people who are dealing with breast cancer and have helped so many people in their hour of need.
“I am honoured to be a patron of the Lily Centre and hope the proceeds from the testimonial can enable them to help even more local people in their fight against breast cancer.”
