I’m very proud to be involved in a new charity single, a cover of the R.E.M. classic “Everybody Hurts” this Christmas. The video has just been released and looks great! Watch the video and read more about it below…
Let me tell you about Reece Holt. Reece is a 12 year-old lad from Overton near Morecambe who was diagnosed with Malignant Anaplastic Astrocytoma in May 2016, after suddenly collapsing at home. His condition is not very promising, but depsite a gruelling 12 cycle chemotherapy treatment it has not stopped Reece’s determination to help other children with cancer. He’s helped raise a lot of money to help hospital Alder Hey to fund vital research into brain tumours in children.
This summer the family wanted to take some time out and have a little holiday – they couldn’t go abroad because of Reece’s treatment and found that a UK holiday was expensive. It was Reece’s own idea to try to purchase a static holiday home somewhere so that other seriously ill children could have somewhere affordable to spend quality time with their families. They have already done a great job of raising money, but local entertainer Stuart Michaels decided to rally the troops and get the charity single made to help to push them over their target.
