Singer Pixie Lott
has become a Patron of CRY following her surprise visit to
Amesbury School in Surrey.
The pupils at
Amesbury School recorded a version of Pixie's song "Boys and
Girls" to sell through iTunes to raise money for CRY in memory
of former pupil
Sebastian English - who died suddenly at age 15
of an undetected heart condition.
The song was
accompanied by a high-quality video which quickly became
a hit on
YouTube and came to Pixie's attention via her mum.
Pixie decided to
visit the school to
perform a surprise concert for the pupils,
and during her visit she agreed to become a Patron of CRY.
She said, "Iíve
become a patron of CRY as it affects so many young people and
itís crazy that a seemingly fit and young person can just drop
down dead. I feel itís important to raise awareness and
will be using my new role to spread the word."
