Who will be this year’s Christmas number 1, and will it be a charity single? Let’s take a look at some of the songs raising funds for good causes this Christmas.

After five Christmas number ones, LadBaby has dropped out but there is at least one single in the running for this year’s top spot that is supporting a good cause.

Creator Universe, which is a collection of over 30 TikTok stars, has done a cover of Wizzard’s 1973 track I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

The song was released on 15 December and is available for download with profits to be donated to The Trussell Trust.

Here’s their offering:

Also released for Christmas and supporting a good cause is Rock Choir’s version. All profits raised by this charity single will go to Cash For Kids and its Mission Christmas appeal. The single features the Rock Choir Vocal Group and a solo from Rock Choir Creator, Caroline Redman Lusher.
