Pop veteran Cher is aiming to bring some Christmas cheer to African orphans - after inviting herself to a Scottish couples' seasonal charity mission to Kenya. The singer contacted Scottish fundraisers ROBERT and ELEANOR WOOD to ask if she and an unknown A-list pal could tag along on their forthcoming trip after finding out about the couple's plan to give 300 teddy bears to disadvantaged youngsters. Robert Wood says, "I did my best to stay calm. It is going to be fantastic."
