Susan Boyle - Susan Boyle Gives Up French Fries To Raise Money For Charity

Subscribe to Susan Boyle alerts

Scottish singer Susan Boyle has given up her favourite snack for the Christian festival of Lent to raise funds for people living in poverty.

The I Dreamed a Dream sensation is throwing her support behind the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (Sciaf)'s Wee Box, Big Change appeal, which asks participants to hand over the money they save from giving up treats for the 40-day period.

Boyle has decided to forgo fries and has urged fans to do the same.

She says, "It makes me really sad to know that so many people in the world today are still living in terrible poverty and struggling to feed themselves.

"I know the money I save from giving up chips (fries) and donating it to Sciaf will help people in need to work their way out of a life of poverty. We can all do something to help people less fortunate than ourselves this Lent. What will you do?"

Other stars taking part in the drive include Scottish band Deacon Blue and sibling duo The Proclaimers.
