Paul said: "My nephew Leo is severely autistic and is receiving superb care at St Nicholas School in Croydon, a school that works tirelessly for children with learning difficulties, autism, Down syndrome and communication difficulties.

The school is very popular with parents and has rapidly increased its population over the last few years, leading to a major rebuild.

"Located in Purley, the pupils at St Nicks come from all parts of the London Borough of Croydon and beyond. The school is very popular with parents and has rapidly increased its population over the last few years, leading to a major rebuild."

He then asked fans to donate to the cause, with the school aiming to build a sensory garden for pupils, which would be 'used to stimulate and inspire pupils through touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing, as well as providing a space for calming, learning and enjoyment.'
