He has recorded a video message for his fans and the hospice’s supporters, in which he said: ‘I’ve been down to visit the hospice and it was an amazing and moving time, and a project definitely worth supporting.’

As reported, Naomi House, which helps children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families, wants to raise the money to refurbish its 17-year-old building.

So far the hospice has managed to raise close to £2m towards the Caterpillar Appeal.
