Simon Cowell has backed a campaign to fund hospice care for terminally-ill children.
The X Factor guru threw his support behind a bid to raise the money to buy 28 Mini's to transport nurses to where they are needed the most.
He told Toby Anstis in an interview on Heart FM: "I have seen first-hand the incredible work children's hospices do to help seriously ill children, young people and their families make the most of short, precious lives.
"The Have a Heart Appeal is all about raising money to give these families a helping hand at home when they most need it. Please join me in supporting this appeal to help your local children's hospice continue their vital work."
The appeal is supported by the radio station and runs for a week from Monday February 28.
Toby said: "Children's Hospices UK does amazing work to give children the highest quality of life possible and to support their families through difficult times. I was very humbled when I visited some of the hospices last year - they're incredibly happy and inspiring places."
