X Factor Winner to Help Cornish Hospice
8:00am 9th December 2012
Whoever wins the X Factor on Sunday night, Pirate FM has learnt his single will help support Cornish families of children with life limiting illnesses.
This year the money raised from the charity track is going to hospices across the country.
That includes Children's Hospice South West - which runs Little Harbour at Porthpean.
Emma Lloyd is in charge of fundraising. She said: "We have no idea how much money we're going to receive as a result of the X Factor winner's single. I suppose it depends who wins the X Factor and how popular they are. But it is expensive work we do and every single penny and pound really makes the difference.
"The reality for mums and dads, brothers and sisters, throughout Cornwall living with life-limited children is that it's incredibly difficult for them every single day. What we can do is just ease the burden of caring and this money will certainly help us do that."8:00am 9th December 2012
