Actor/musician Billy Boyd is to use his singing talents to raise money for a children's cancer charity by performing at a benefit concert in Scotland next year (14).

The Lord of the Rings star, who is also a noted singer, will hit the stage with his band Beecake at the Love of Eilidh event on 17 January in Stirling, Scotland to help raise cash for The Eilidh Brown Memorial Fund, a trust which supports children with cancer.

The money raised will be used to help build a respite home for children diagnosed with the illness.
