“It is unacceptable to me that any child in Scotland should grow up in poverty or neglect. I am delighted and honoured to be supporting Circle in Scotland as they spread their invaluable work across the country.”

A Circle spokesman said: “Happy Father’s Day everyone. Circle is proud to celebrate the difference a great dad makes - to children, families and society.
