Mr Emeny-Smith, who attended Bexley Grammar School, features in the song’s video, filmed at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.

He said: “I am immensely proud to have taken part in the recording of this amazing song, and I have my fingers crossed the public will get behind it and help raise money for the three charities.”
