80s Stars Help Five Year Old

Eighties pop stars Tony Hadley and Paul Young have recorded a Christmas song to raise money for a disabled boy from Northamptonshire.
Lewis Ware, 5, from Towcester, has Cerebral Palsy which means he can't walk. His family are hoping to raise £50,000 so they can afford to take Lewis to a hospital in America where he can have a specialist operation to help him walk.
The song, which included the vocals of Hadley and Young, is a Christmas song called 'Happy Birthday JC'.
The royalties made from the song will all go to Lewis's fund.
Lewis's mum Emma Wares told Heart the idea came from his eight year old sister Lily:
"Lilly came up with this crazy idea. She was inspired by the film 'About A Boy' with the Christmas song where he gets money every year from the royalties of the song so we thought if we do this we could see Lewis right for his whole life."
