East Anglian hospices set to benefit from X Factor hit

More than 300 families across the East of England will benefit from sales of X Factor winner Sam Bailey's single, Skyscraper, which is this year's Christmas number one.

East Anglia's Children's Hospice is to get a share of the money that's going to the charity 'Together for Short Lives'.

With three hospices in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk costing thousands of pounds to run each day, the money will help them to continue delivering care.

ITV News Anglia correspondent Victoria Lampard went along to the Treehouse, while the children were being visited by Ipswich Town football players, to see how they were taking the great news.
