The campaign to build a children's hospice is about to get a boost from an up and coming young singer.
Ellie Red will be donating 20 per cent of the profits from her single Feels Like Home to the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service.
The charity funds Alexander’s Nurses offering specialist respite and end of life care for children and their families in their own homes. It is also fundraising to build the new hospice in Maidenhead.
Ellie is releasing her single on iTunes on November 8 - the same day as she appears on Chris Evans' Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
Dedworth-based Fiona Devine who founded the charity with her husband John in memory of their son Alexander said: "Ellie sang at our biggest fund raising cabaret event run by our patron Sir Michael Parkinson at Wentworth. She is very nice and down to earth. We were delighted when we learned she was going to donate some of the profits from the record to the charity."
