Rod Stewart to Donate Proceeds from 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' Single to Charities


A share of the proceeds from Rod Stewart's upcoming single, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," will be split between two charities near and dear to Stewart's heart, he announced today. The single is now available for digital download.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival of young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. They fund and build specialist units within NHS hospitals that bring young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them.

"I live a blessed and wonderful life and this Christmas it means a lot to me to be able to do something that can help young people with cancer," Stewart said. I really admire the work done by Teenage Cancer Trust and I'm happy that Celtic Football Club's charity fund will help raise money for such a worthwhile cause."

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell added: "Celtic has always been more than a Club, we have a unique history and one which is characterised by helping those in need. Rod has been a massive supporter of the Club and we sincerely appreciate the huge contribution which he is making to our charitable work."
