Generating over 400,000 views since its arrival online in November - Musician's Ben Potts and Andy Green from Sunderland and Newcastle share news of their 'Alternative John Lewis Advert 2019'.

The North-East England duo have self-funded the video to raise money for both Make A Wish UK and Age UK charities. The video was filmed in Hartlepool Hospital and tells the tale of a lonely Santa (played by Seamus O'Neill) delivering presents to sick children. Accompanying the emotive visual story line is Ben & Andy's rendition of Nothing Ever Happens by Del Amitri which also features live orchestra 'Crude Strings' and choral vocals from 'Tyneside Voices'.

With an estimated 13,000 children to be spending Christmas in hospital and over 530,000 elderly people enduring the festive season alone this year - Ben & Andy are aiming to raise multiple thousands for both charities.
