A 13-year-old girl from Weymouth is releasing a charity single to raise money in memory of her stillborn sister.

Mersey Moore is releasing ‘A Song for Ferrie’ on December 11 on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.

The song will cost just 99p and all proceeds will go towards Sands, the neonatal and stillbirth charity.

Ferrie would have been Mersey's older sister, but she was stillborn in 2003.

Listen to a preview of the song here:

Mersey said: “My biggest inspiration for the song is my sister herself. Ferrie has been an inspiration for me in everything I do in life. I wanted to make her proud so I wrote the song, all for her.

“I want my song to help all other kids out there wondering why they grew up without a sister or brother. For when they never understood why other kids moaned about siblings, when all their life they’ve longed for one. For the families who never truly knew how to put their hurt into words. And mainly so I can help Sands prevent this from happening as common as it does. So they can help support the families going through one of the worst tragedies possible.

“I believe my sister can hear it every time. I think of her every time I sing her song, and I know she is there with me.

“I know she’d be so proud of me. Not just for the song but for the impact, the awareness and for the money raised for the charity so dear to our hearts.

“One small donation can help change so many lives for the better. Every share, click and donation will mean the world to me and many, many others. Thank you.”

This is not the first charitable cause Mersey has undertaken. She has donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust and taken part in the Walk for Wards at Dorset County Hospital.

The budding young actress also appeared in an episode of BBC's Casualty in 2016.

Daniel Brett-Schneider, Director of Fundraising, Communications and Engagement, at Sands said: “We’re very grateful to Mersey Moore and her family for supporting Sands through this beautiful song in remembrance of her sister Ferrie.

“When a baby dies it is an enormous bereavement for the whole family including children who were looking forward to having a new brother, sister or cousin.

“The funds raised through Mersey’s Song for Ferrie will help Sands fund research to save babies lives and ensure that any family devastated by the death of a baby get the bereavement care and support they need for as long as they need it.”

A JustGiving page has also been set up to raise even more money for Sands: https://bit.ly/2G7CeRc
