CHESTNUT Tree House children’s hospice is set to be given some of the proceeds of this year’s X Factor winner’s single.

The single will be in aid of children’s charity Together for Shorter Lives, and through it’s partnership Chestnut Tree House will benefit.

The two X Factor finalists will perform their prospective winner’s single live during The X Factor’s spectacular final at the SSE Wembley Arena.

The song will be available to download immediately after The X Factor winner is crowned on the December 14.

Linda Perry, director of children’s services for Chestnut Tree House, said: “We are delighted to be benefitting from this wonderful and exciting project.

“Chestnut Tree House is the only children’s hospice for Sussex. We provide specialist palliative care services to 300 children and young people aged 0 - 19 with life-shortening and life-threatening illnesses in East and West Sussex and South East Hampshire, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes.”

“The funds we receive from this initiative will enable us to continue providing our unique support to so many families.”

The single will be the seventh charity release from The X Factor, which have raised millions of pounds for charity.
