Cassidy and Melua track makes it a wonderful world for the Red Cross

A song sold to raise money for the British Red Cross reached number one in the Official UK Singles Chart last weekend.

The track, ‘What a Wonderful World’, by Eva Cassidy and Katie Melua, is being sold exclusively by supermarket Tesco and is in the running for the Christmas number one slot.

All profits made from record sales will be spent on British Red Cross services in the UK.

“Everyone at the British Red Cross is so excited,” said Phil Talbot, director of communications at the British Red Cross. “This isn’t just a gift this Christmas because vulnerable people across the UK will continue to benefit from Red Cross services for years to come.”

Ruth Girardet, corporate responsibility director at Tesco, said: “This is a perfect way to end a successful year of fundraising for the British Red Cross, the Tesco charity of the year for 2007.”
