The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, a member of Together for Short Lives will receive a share of the proceeds.

Speaking to Official, James Arthur said: “To everyone from home and around Britain who bought the single, thank you very, very much. You’ve made my dreams come true.

“The fact that it was in aid of Together for Short Lives, which is a great cause and a great charity, I think that really helped.”

Peter Branson, chief executive of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice said: “Our share of the proceeds will go towards our work supporting children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

“Every single bought will make a difference and help us offer a lifeline to these children and families, who are ordinary people leading extraordinary lives”.
