|Holly Lodge Centre Appoints Adrian Mills As Patron
British actor supports the educational charity in Richmond Park
Mr. Mills trained as an actor and enjoyed a successful career on stage before turning to television, appearing on Play for Today, Brookside and – in what he calls his finest moment -- as the arch villain, Aris, in a Dr. Who series where he played alongside fellow Holly Lodge Centre patron, Peter Davison.
“In addition to his many television, radio and acting duties, Adrian has taken the time to be an active supporter of and volunteer at the Holly Lodge Centre for several years,” said David Thomas, chairman of the Centre’s board of trustees. “He has hosted our annual Christmas concert, a recent concert by the Chiswick Gospel Choir and has welcomed guests at our annual Victorian Picnic for students of local special needs schools,” Thomas added. “We couldn’t be more delighted that Adrian has agreed to join our distinguished group of patrons and we look forward to his continued support of the Centre.”
“I’m delighted to accept the position as a patron of the Centre and will continue to do everything I can to spread the word about the work of such a fantastic place,” responded Mr. Mills.
Mr. Mills has presented numerous travel programmes for Television and is currently fronting programmes for the cruise company, Fred Olsen. He has recently hosted the highly successful AM Show on radio as well as continuing his long association as a contributor to LBC Radio. This year he has acted in a number of short films and serves frequently as host, presenter and after dinner speaker.
