Nurses release charity single for children with serious illness

  • Comment

A charity single recorded by nurses and featuring band Scouting For Girls is to be released tomorrow to raise money for children with serious illness.

The single is a cover of Bad Day by Daniel Powter, released in 2005, and will this time be sung by the WellChild charity’s nurse and families choir.

Alongside Scouting For Girls, it will also feature X-Factor contestant Josh Daniel from last year’s show.

”This single captures a unique spirit that we see time and again amongst the growing number of families caring for a child at home with exceptional health needs”

Meanwhile Prince Harry, who is a patron of the charity, will appear in the video for the song, alongside WellChild nurses and the children they support.

The song marks the 10-year anniversary of the first ever WellChild children’s nurse in 2006.

The network now includes more than 30 nurses across the UK who provide support to children with exceptional health needs so they can leave hospital to be cared for at home with their families.

It is hoped the song will raise awareness of the challenges faced by thousands of families across the UK caring for a child or young person at home with serious illness.

WellChild chief executive Colin Dyer said: “This single captures a unique spirit that we see time and again amongst the growing number of families caring for a child at home with exceptional health needs.

“Many work 24/7 and face daily battles to keep their children safe. Their enduring resilience and positivity is an inspiration to us all and this is what we are hoping to convey with our first ever charity single.”

The single is available for to be pre-ordered on iTunes for 99p ahead of its general release tomorrow, with all proceeds going towards WellChild’s work.
