Simon Cowell backs children's hospice appeal
Cowell, a patron of Children’s Hospices, is urging people to support the Have a Heart appeal, organised by radio station Heart. It aims to raise cash to buy Minis for 28 children's hospices and funding for nursing hours to deliver care and support when and where it is needed most.
The 51-year-old said: "I have seen first-hand the incredible work that children’s hospices do to help seriously ill children and their families make the most of short, precious lives.
"The Have a Heart appeal is all about raising money to give these families a hand at home when they most need it."
Heart morning presenter Toby Anstis said: "Children’s Hospices UK does amazing work to give children the highest quality of life possible and to support their families through difficult times. I was very humbled when I visited some of the hospices last year – they’re incredibly happy and inspiring places.
"With help from our listeners, we look forward to raising thousands of pounds for local hospices across the UK and making a real difference to children’s lives."
