Chocs away as Boyle tackles poverty

Singing sensation Susan Boyle will give up her favourite chocolate and sweet treats for Lent as she lends her support to a fundraising campaign.

Fans of the performer are expected to turn out in Glasgow where Boyle will launch the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund's (Sciaf) Wee Box, Big Change project.

The campaign asks people to give up a treat for Lent and collect the cash savings in a box to donate to the charity, which helps impoverished people in developing countries.

Boyle, who was catapulted to global fame after appearing on Britain's Got Talent, has enjoyed massive success with her two albums I Dreamed a Dream and The Gift.

Charity spokesman Val Morgan said ahead of the launch: "Susan has known about Sciaf's work helping people out of poverty overseas since she was a young girl.

"Her parents always had one of our Wee Boxes at home each Lent.

"This year Susan will be supporting the campaign by giving up sweets and chocolate."

Chief executive Paul Chitnis said: "We are extremely fortunate to have the support of a really wide range of famous Scots but Susan is our first truly global superstar.

"I'm sure Susan's involvement will help to raise the profile of the campaign and encourage more people than ever to get their own Wee Box and join us in our campaign to combat global poverty."
