Lorraine is a keen charity supporter with a particular affinity for children’s causes and said it was a ‘perfect fit’ to join Archie as a patron.

Lorraine said: “I am really excited to get involved with projects in Tayside and throughout the region, and use my platform to support the charity as much as I can.”
