David Walliams has donated a huge £10k to his Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer contestant Christian Kildruff, the five-year-old who has embarked on his own charity initiative to help the NHS. As our health service is pushed to the limits, people everywhere have been raising money to help our brave hero’s out and Christian is one of them.
The youngster, who suffers from cerebral palsy, aims to walk three-miles on his frame to raise money and David couldn’t resist helping him out.
They have raised more than £25,000 so far for the frontline workers so far, and Christian has almost reached his three-mile target.
He is part of choir Sign With Us alongside his older sister Jade, and the group stunned the BGT judges with their performance.
Leaving Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon in tears, the group sang and signed a beautiful rendition of This Is Me from the musical The Greatest Showman.
Jade set up the sign language choir in order to help her communicate with her brother, and it’s safe to say they won over the nation’s hearts.
Taking to Twitter, the proud sister shared the news with her followers.
She wrote: “OMG can’t stop crying, massive thank you @davidwalliams first you made our group’s dreams come true on @BGT with the #goldenbuzzer and now you’ve donated a whopping £10,000 to Christians 3-mile challenge fundraiser for the @NHSuk couldn’t thank you enough.”
X Factor star Olly Murs, was also among those who made a generous donation to Christian’s cause.
Jade has been documenting Christian’s journey and people have come out in full force to support the youngster’s mission.
Days after their hugely successful audition was aired on TV, Jade opened up to the publication about how important the choir is to her.
“When Christian was born, he was stillborn and he couldn’t breathe for 24 minutes and because his brain was starved of oxygen that led to his disabilities,” she revealed.
“At five weeks old we decided to foster Christian and he was put up for adoption but because of how he was no one wanted to adopt him.”
