Waitrose launch charity Christmas single

Still from Waitrose 2014 Christmas advert featuring charity single Try

UK supermarket Waitrose will release its very own charity Christmas single with a difference.

The single a beautiful choral rendition of Dolly Parton’s ‘Try’ will be available to download from Sunday 9 November with 100 per cent of sales set to benefit Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity along with Age UK and the Trussell Trust.

The single, which is also the soundtrack to the Waitrose Christmas TV advertisement (also due to air on Sunday), features a mix of recordings from individuals who entered their own version of the song for the ‘Donate Your Voice’ campaign, which ran between 18-28 October, to create a virtual choir.
Thank you to everyone who took part, the single will be available to purchase once the ad has aired on Sunday evening from iTunes and Google Play.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this very special Christmas single, we hope that everyone enjoyed taking part. The donations made will help us continue to provide world class care for children with some of the rarest and most complex conditions from across the UK.”
Tim Johnson, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity Chief Executive
