Story

In 2017 I became a dad and as this year's festive season approached I began to think about how we could make it special for my son. That's when I realised that there must be thousands of children around the country who won't have someone there to make Christmas special for them. I just had to do something about that.

 So together with the brilliant Kate Marlais, Ben Robbins and a host of West End stars we have recorded a cover of Carole King's You've Got A Friend, which we hope you will enjoy and consider donating to this cause.
