X-Factor winner helps hospice
4:00pm Thursday 3rd January 2013 in News
CHILDREN’S hospice Julia’s House is set to get a fundraising boost thanks to the chart topping X-Factor winner James Arthur.
The Dorset hospice is among the children’s hospices set to benefit from sales of his new single Impossible, which is currently topping the charts.
It is being sold in aid of Together For Short Lives, a leading UK charity for children with life limiting conditions. The charity – which will receive 100 percent of the profits from the sale of each CD single and download – supports families, professionals and services, including children’s hospices nationwide.
A Julia’s House spokesman said: “Our share of the proceeds will go towards our work supporting children with life-limiting conditions and their families.”
