They created A Son is Given because of their concern for less fortunate children around the world.

Poppy, 12, said: “It is to help children who are at high risk or orphaned and the money will make their lives so much better.”

Monty, ten, said: “We will be eating turkey and being merry and they will be in shelters and maybe starving and have illnesses and it’s a good thing to do to help.”

Barty, seven, said a song seemed the obvious way to raise awareness for the charity and raise money.

“When I write songs I feel good,” he said, “but when it is to help some other kids I feel really good because it’s important to help people.”

The siblings, of Strand Way, have also made a music video.

The song is free to view, download or sing but they would like anyone who does to donate to Compassion International.

The charity helps abandoned children and orphans of war who are enduring some of the most deplorable conditions in the world.

It gives them care, housing and other critical services.

A Son is Given can be heard, donations made and, at www.asonisgiven.org.
