To many Peter André who is visiting Donegal Town on Friday morning is a celebrity, a singer and a man who enjoys the finer things in life.

To many Peter André who is visiting Donegal Town on Friday morning is a celebrity, a singer and a man who enjoys the finer things in life.

Indeed all very true and well deserved for a man who has worked so hard to achieve his success but there is another side to this compassionate man.

Just last week Peter opened up about the death of his older brother Andrew and has said that his latest fundraising efforts for Cancer Research have helped him in the healing process.

The television personality, who lost his brother to kidney cancer last December, has just launched his latest project, Pete’s Champions, which encourages fans to raise as much money as possible for the charity.

“Honestly, the project has helped me so much in coming to terms with what has happened, but also in helping other people.

“Andrew’s death was devastating for my whole family but made me determined to help prevent other families from going through the same tragedy

“Pete’s Champions really is something special, we’re asking people to raise money for Cancer Research and to do something they want to do.”

Fans can get involved in a number of ways, by organising bake sales, taking part in sponsored runs or giving something up for a week.

Pete’s Champions was launched on Monday last and had such an overwhelmingly positive response of “champions” wanting to get involved that the Cancer Research site crashed. which means that just so many people wanted to get involved.

Peter will be in Donegal Town along with his partner Emily McDonagh (who must have Irish connections) at Cara Health and Beauty at 10.30 am on Friday morning to meet his many Donegal fans.

The ITV London crew will accompany Peter and Emily on their visit to the North West for a programme which will be screened later in the season.
