MONEY raised from the X Factor winner’s single will go towards a hospice that helps children from Hampshire.

The single will be in aid of children’s charity Together for Short Lives.

Through its partnership with the charity, Naomi House and Jacksplace hospice near Winchester will benefit from the proceeds.

Paul Morgan, head of fundraising for Naomi House, said: ‘I’m thrilled the children, young people and families in our care stand to benefit from the sale of this year’s X Factor single.

‘Not only will the money raised provide a valuable boost to our fundraising efforts at this important time of year, but the exposure this partnership will generate can only help raise awareness of the crucial work undertaken by children’s hospices across the country.’

At least £1 from each CD sold and 20p from each download of the single will go to the charity.

Naomi House helps children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, including those from south-east Hampshire.

The X Factor final takes place on Sunday, where a winner will be crowned on the popular ITV talent show.
