Duncan hands over TV suits to us

When TV presenter Duncan Wood bid farewell to ITV Calendar, he found himself with a wardrobe of designer suits he no longer needed — so he’s donated them to us.

Duncan, our ambassador, stepped down from the news programme in May after 19 years presenting the show.

Duncan said: ‘I’ve never been a great follower of fashion, but I’ve been fortunate to collect a few designer suits and ties over nearly two decades at Calendar and I think it’s time for some of them to find a place in someone else’s wardrobe.

‘They’ve been seen on live TV and spent hours and hours in the studio at television centre in Leeds and now they could be yours!

‘I’ve had a long association with Martin House and anything I can do to raise awareness for the incredible work of the hospice while bringing in the odd donation is very worthwhile.’

Sunny Allison, our retail area manager, said: ‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to Duncan for thinking of Martin House and donating his suits to us to sell in our shops.

‘Our charity shops play an important role in helping us to raise fund for the vital care we provide, and we’re always in need of donations of quality pre-loved items like this.’
