Together for Short Lives is so thrilled that Matt Terry is the 2016 X Factor Winner! We loved hearing Matt debuting his winner’s single ‘When Christmas Comes Around’ at the final on Sunday 11 December. This is an original Christmas song written by Ed Sheeran for this year’s winner of The X Factor. All proceeds from the track are in aid of Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase.

I cannot believe I have won. It’s everything I have ever wanted. A massive thank you to everyone that helped to get me here, this is for them. And thank you to Nicole for believing in me from the very beginning.Matt Terry
‘When Christmas Comes Around’ is the ninth charity release from The X Factor and the fifth winner’s single where profits have been donated to charity. Simco Limited will donate 100% of its profits from the sale of each download and in respect of all streaming in the UK and the Republic of Ireland to be shared equally by Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star Chase.
Barbara Gelb OBE, CEO for Together for Short Lives said:
“Huge congratulations to Matt Terry, we love your winning song When Christmas Comes Around and wish you all the luck in the world.
Together for Short Lives is so thrilled to be benefiting from this amazing X Factor charity single, it means so much to us and the 50,000 children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Your single has the power to reach out and help seriously ill children right across the UK. Families don’t know what tomorrow will bring and often feel isolated and alone.
By buying the X Factor single, everyone can help with their journey. Every copy you buy will make the most amazing Christmas present for our vital work across the UK, making a lasting difference to the lives of these children and families.”
