David Tennant, of Reverse Charge, said: "When I heard what the project was raising money for we jumped at the chance to be involved, I loved the song and the idea that a group of musicians from completely different genres and backgrounds in music were willing to collaborate on a project to help out a worthwhile causes.

"The song is a great pop song with a Christmas feel and I’m sure that it will help to raise a lot of money for some very worthy causes."

Sue Green, of the British Heart Foundation, thanked the station for supporting the heart disease charity in 'such a fantastic way'.

COR Radio manager Wayne Davidson said: "I decided that I wanted to do something for Christmas to fundraise for the station and the local community as we are all self funding projects, but then we got involved with the British Heart Foundation after a recent family scare.

"I wanted to do something for the BHF because the work they do is amazing and the support they offer to people and families is second to none."

The single and music video are available from every major digital outlet including iTunes, HMV and Amazon are available to stream through Napster and Spotify.
