Boost from fans of X-Factor star
Fans of former X-Factor winner Sam Bailey have raised more than Â£10,000 for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People by donating at her shows. In February, Sam announced Rainbows as the charity partner for her 2017 '˜Sing My Heart Out' tour. At each of the UK performances, there was a collection for the hospice, which cares for children and young people with life-limited illnesses.
Now, as our photo shows, Sam has visited the hospice to meet children, young people and staff and present the donation.
Sam said: “I’m so pleased that we have been able to raise £10,300 for Rainbows. The work they do there is just outstanding and every time I visit I feel so proud to be a patron for them. I had such an amazing time on tour and raising much needed funds.”
