A BRITISH-run hospice is hoping world-famous flamenco singer Estrella Morente (pictured) will become its charity patron.

Granada-based Acompalia approached the Spanish star after the high-profile position was turned down by Princess Letizia.

The charity is hoping to raise €1.5m to build a dedicated hospice in Motril.

It has already raised thousands this year with many more fundraising activities in the pipeline.

These include a wine tasting, an art exhibition, a golf tournament and even a pig roast.

The charity also hopes to continue to attract volunteer support and donations from individuals, groups and professional organisations throughout southern Spain.
