A group of former miners and their families who have released a charity Christmas single are being cheered on by Ed.
Many of the miners worked at Hatfield Main which closed down last year despite a long campaign to save it.
Now, along with their families, they have released Merry Christmas From Hatfield Main and Ed, who was a key part of the battle to save the pit, is urging everyone to buy it.
He has tweeted his support for the charity song, which can be downloaded by clicking here.
He said: “It’s a great song and the proceeds will be donated to help families here in Doncaster. I hope everyone in the borough, and beyond, gets behind it – and help to push it as high up the charts as possible.”
Profits from the single, which has been given odds of 33-1 to top the festive charts, will be donated to Doncaster food banks.
Filmmaker Ken Loach is also backing the song, written by Yorkshire singer songwriter Joe Solo and recorded with the help of The Hatfield Brigade, a group of former miners and their families, at Central Club in Stainforth in October.
It is available to download from all major outlets.
Hatfield Main, which featured in the film Brassed Off, was Doncaster’s last working coal mine and Mr Miliband worked with management and union officials in a long struggle to secure its future.
