BRITAIN’S Got Talent’s Sign Along With Us were reduced to tears once again by David Walliams after he donated £10,000 to member Christian’s NHS fundraiser.
The comedian – who pressed his golden buzzer for the the 65-strong choir on the ITV show last month – took to Twitter to share their delight over his generous donation.
They posted: “Omg can’t stop crying, massive thank you @davidwalliams first you made our groups 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.”
While over on their Just Giving page, the Kildruff family explained the backstory of their fundraising efforts.
The page read: “Christian is 5 years old and has a HIE brain injury, Cerebral palsy and is severely sight impaired, he whilst in isolation has become a little scared of walking on his frame, we are doing daily walks to build his confidence and strength back up.
“We have set him a goal of walking 3 miles outside and near our house within the next 2 weeks. A big goal but he’s so determined we know he can do this if he works hard.
“We would like to raise lots of money for the NHS as they saved Christians life at birth and have cared for him ever since and we are forever grateful.”
The page has since raised over £25,000, with many Twitter users praising David, 48, for his generous contribution.
One wrote: “Wow. That was such a generous and kind gesture of David. It’s really going to benefit the NHS. I hope Christian is doing well.”
A third tweeted: “That is fantastic! What a generous gesture. You must be over the moon Jade and Christian! Well Done!! Brilliant!!!”
Viewers of the hit ITV show were reduced to tears when David pressed his golden buzzer for Sign Along With Us last month.
The 65-strong choir sang and signed The Greatest Showman’s This is Me and moved the audience.
The choir was formed by Jade, 18, after she started a class for her brother Christian, four, who has trouble communicating.
The choir, whose ages range from four to 58, performed in bright T-shirts bringing plenty of colour to the stage.
As David hit his buzzer and golden confetti filled the stage, the choir cheered, hugged each other and cried.
David said at the time: “Every one of you gave everything to his performance. An amazing positive message to put out there.”
