Singing sensation Susan Boyle is giving up chips for Lent.

The West Lothian star is joining thousands of people who are giving something up for the 40 days of Lent and donating the money saved to support the Wee Box, Big Change charity appeal run by the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF).

Boyle said: “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 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.”
