A CONSTABLE is set to make an exhibition of himself to raise money for charity.
Pc Neville Duke - who spent many years on patrol in Huddersfield - is an artist specialising in watercolours.
He is to stage a one-man exhibition at the National Coal Mining Museum for England at Grange Moor this Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
But he is raffling one of his paintings, which depicts the museum, to raise money for the Macmillan Nurses.
"I've got a target in mind to raise £1,000," he said.
"Raffle tickets are £1 each and I've already sold 300."
The exhibition will feature almost 80 paintings ranging from seascapes and landscapes to modern art.
Pc Duke, of Flockton, will retire next year and plans to spend more time painting.
"It all began about 20 years ago when I broke my leg in a motorcycle accident," he said.
"My wife bought me some paints and it started from there with a painting of Castle Hill, which I sold to a colleague."
Pc Duke is now based with the road policing intelligence unit at Wakefield.
During his career he has served in Moldgreen, Lockwood, Milnsbridge, Kirkburton and Holmfirth.
