Vicki-Louise Sherwin will release the charity single with singing partner Charlie Botting next month.

Vicki-Louise Sherwin, 14, who attends Brooke Weston Academy, and Charlie Botting, of Bishop Stopford, will release their version of Now I’ve Found You At Last on February 1.

The youngsters have already helped to raise £6,000 for the hospice and hope to reach the £10,000 landmark to help patients and nurses.

Vicki-Louise was inspired to raise funds for the hospice after her grandma, who had previously volunteered there, passed away.

She said: “We’ve already raised a lot of money but we wanted to find a different way to raise funds and we wanted to get creative for Lakelands.

“I started helping out when I busked in 2014 to raise some money for them and it’s all stemmed from there.

“I’ve been so inspired by the courage and bravery of the people here and they get no funding so they need all the support they can get.

“We want to help the patients and nurses to say thank you for all the incredible work that they do.

“Big thanks must also go to the Chris Broom, who composed the song, for letting us cover it.

“The people of Corby are so generous and I hope they come out in force to buy it.”

The single will be available to buy on Amazon after its launch next month.

Hard copies will also be available on the launch night and at the hospice.
