Simon Cowell has always been a big supporter of charities. Today Simon announced that he and his company Syco Entertainment will donate £1.3 million to the hardest hit charities.

Without the ability to put on fundraising events and open charity shops many smaller charities are desperate for funds.

"I was devastated to learn one of the many charities impacted is Shooting Star Children’s Hospices"

Writing his own column in The Sun newspaper, Simon pledges £500,000 to Shooting Stars Children's Hospices where he is vice-president, saying "I was devastated to learn one of the many charities impacted is Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, a small charity in the south of England I have been lucky to be involved with since 2002, which is a lifeline to 800 families with babies, children and young people suffering the most devastating life-limiting conditions."

Last week Shooting Star was forced to close one of its two hospice sites, along with the high street charity shops where it normally raises vital funds every week.

Simon goes on to say "I’ve sat with youngsters who know they only have weeks to live and spent time with parents bearing the most unimaginable pain possible, the loss of a child. This charity is an oasis, a lifeline for families facing the ultimate heartbreak. That’s why we must continue to show our love and support for these smaller organisations.

I know that every little helps. I’ve seen how every little can help."

Simon and his team at Syco will also donate $1,000,000 (£800,000) towards the immediate needs of some of the most vulnerable people impacted by this virus, and this will be split between Feeding Britain and Feeding America.

Simon is also calling on people in business and in entertainment to pledge money to help front line workers and small charities during this Coronavirus pandemic.
