Lesley supports dogs who sniff out cancer

When she's not cooking up a treat in the Downtown Abbey kitchen as Mrs Patmore actress Lesley Nicol is a volunteer for Medical Detection Dogs, a charity which trains dogs to detect cancer and assist those with long-term life-threatening health conditions.

The charity was set up by Dr Claire Guest and little did she know that her own pet dog Daisy would then end up saving HER life!
