The Manchester City midfielder made the donation after hearing about charity Sun And Happiness, provides holidays for youngsters in poverty or battling life-threatening diseases.

Barry has agreed to let the charity use his plush property in Puerto Banús, Málaga, whenever he isn't there.

He said in The Sun: "It's a pleasure to donate my holiday home to this fantastic charity and I look forward to hearing the holiday stories of these amazing kids."

Sun And Happiness was formed by single mum Kim Wood and has been signing up celebrities to make similar donations - with Barry among the first to join the scheme.

She added: "We have only been established for a few months but we are already attracting a lot of interest from players in the Premier League and beyond.

"We would love to get more players involved too.

"Gareth Barry was one of the first footballers to donate his holiday home to this worthwhile cause, and his involvement will surely inspire many other celebrities to get involved."
