We are delighted that The X Factor Winner's Duet is in aid of Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase. 

The fantastic Rak-Su have been crowned winners of The X Factor 2017 and profits from their winner's duet single with Naughty Boy and Wyclef Jean will support Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase.

Their original song, Dimelo, is set to be the soundtrack to Christmas 2017. You can listen to the song NOW on Spotify, or download or stream it on Google Play or Apple Music. It costs just 99p to buy the song, with the proceeds coming directly to Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase, so please download the song today and help families facing the unimaginable make the most of their precious time together. 


Together for Short Lives works together with local services and children's hospices like Shooting Star Chase to help seriously-ill children, young people and their families make the most of every single moment they have together. Josh and his family were supported by Shooting Star Chase hospice, following Josh's diagnosis with a rare form of cancer. You can read more about Josh's story here.

simonSpeaking on The X Factor on Saturday night (2 December 2017), Simon Cowell showed how much our charity means to him. "I've worked with these charities and I know how much help they need. So this is what we're going to do this weekend: we're going to try and raise a million pounds...I'm going to kick this off with a £250,000 donation."

You can help us reach £1 million by downloading the song, or joining Simon and donating now via our website.

“We are delighted to be benefiting from the X Factor Charity Winner’s Single once again this year," says our CEO Barbara Gelb. "It’s a wonderful Christmas gift, and your generous support will mean so much to the UK’s 49,000 seriously ill children and their families. Thank you X Factor!”
