A little girl from Preston is calling on local charitable folk from her home city to help get a song to the top of the singles chart this Christmas.

Amber Bostock, 7, recorded the Christmas classic, “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” with Wacky Warehouse after winning a national competition to join the soft play centre’s Little Singers group.

And profits from the sales of the single will be going to BBC Children in Need.

Lisa Stambridge, general manager of the Phantom Winger, where Amber entered the competition, said: “Amber is a very talented little girl and we’d love for Preston locals to give her the best Christmas present ever by downloading the song and give it a shot at number one.

“Together, with Wacky Warehouses up and down the country, we’ve been able to raise over £60,000 for the charity so far.

“But we would love to generate even more through sales of the single.”

Amber was invited to spend the day at a recording studio to sing along with the nine other winners on the first official Wacky Christmas song.

And now Amber and the group will be going head to head with some of the world’s top artists for the coveted Christmas number one spot – including Simon Cowell’s X Factor winner Ben Haenow with his single ‘Something I Need’, which is currently in the lead for the top spot, and Bob Geldof’s Band Aid 30.
