Simon Cowell talks to Toby

As a patron of Children's Hospices UK Simon Cowell is backing the Have a Heart Appeal which will be raising funds for children’s hospice care in families’ homes.  He urged listeners to get fundraising for their local children’s hospice.

He said: “I have seen first-hand the incredible work children's hospices do to help seriously ill children, young people and their families make the most of short, precious lives. The Have a Heart Appeal is all about raising money to give these families a helping hand at home when they most need it. Please join me in supporting this appeal to help your local children’s hospice continue their vital work.”

Have a Heart aims to raise enough money to provide 28 children’s hospices with a MINI and funding for nursing hours to deliver care and support when and where it is needed most. The Appeal Week will run from Monday 28 February to Friday 4 March, culminating in a fundraising extravaganza, featuring a host of celebrities alongside Heart presenters.

Heart's Toby Anstis said: “Children’s Hospices UK does amazing work to give children the highest quality of life possible and to support their families through difficult times. I was very humbled when I visited some of the hospices last year – they’re incredibly happy and inspiring places. With help from our listeners, we look forward to raising thousands of pounds for local hospices across the UK and making a real difference to children’s lives.”
