BUCKS char­ity Scan­nap­peal has ap­pointed the ac­claimed ac­tor Robert Lind­say as its prin­ci­pal pa­tron.

Mr Lind­say, who has lived in Den­ham for more than 21 years, is tak­ing on the role with Scan­nap­peal, a char­ity which pro­vides cut­ting edge equip­ment for the county’s NHS hospi­tals.

This year, all of Scan­nap­peal’s four ma­jor fundrais­ing ap­peals are reach­ing their con­clu­sions and the char­ity is also launch­ing three new ap­peals over the com­ing months which will help even more NHS pa­tients in the county to re­ceive more ef­fec­tive treat­ment and di­ag­no­sis.

This is the first time that Mr Lind­say, star of My Fam­ily and Ci­ti­zen Smith, has worked with Scan­nap­peal. He said: “As a Buck­ing­hamshire res­i­dent, I’ve wit­nessed first-hand the fan­tas­tic out­comes that Scan­nap­peal helps our lo­cal NHS to de­liver.

“And as some­one who is a pas­sion­ate be­liever in our NHS, the op­por­tu­nity to re­ally make a dif­fer­ence and help our lo­cal com­mu­nity re­ceive an even bet­ter ser­vice when they need it was sim­ply a pull I could not re­sist.”

Wil­liam Bax­ter, chair­man of Scan­nap­peal, said: “We’re thrilled to have Robert join our team at Scan­nap­peal and we’re look­ing for­ward to a long and re­ward­ing part­ner­ship with him. We’re con­tin­u­ing to take great strides for­ward in help­ing our lo­cal NHS hospi­tals be­come cen­tres of ex­cel­lence and de­liver world class ser­vices. Hav­ing Robert on board is sim­ply go­ing to help us achieve even more.”
