Help make 'Tiny Dancer' Ireland's Christmas No. 1 for the Sunni-Mae Trust

Many of you will have already heard of The Sunni- Mae Trust set up to assist Lily-Mae Morrison, a 4 year old Galway girl who is suffering from a rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma, which often requires treatment outside of Ireland. To date, the campaign has raised ■120,000. We now need your help to raise more money to help other families affected by Neuroblastoma and to research possible treatments and cures.

Lily-Mae is the daughter of dancers Judith Sibley and Leighton Morrison who are best known for their work with Chrysalis Dance and Youth Ballet West.

Recently a group of Ireland's most popular music stars gathered to record the Elton John song 'Tiny Dancer'. Paddy Casey, Declan O'Rourke, Mary Black, Mundy and Camille O'Sullivan are just a few of the musicians involved along with a choir of over 200 voices drawn from the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS) choirs across the country.

To help our ‘Christmas No. 1’ campaign, many of the music stars on the single will join me and Minister for the Arts, Jimmy Deenihan TD for a photocall outside Leinster House on Thursday, November 29th at 11.30am. I would be grateful if you could spare a moment to come out and express your support for this worthy cause.
