SINGING sensation Joss Stone is urging people to get their walking boots on to help vulnerable children.

The 25-mile Hike Against Cruelty to Kids is taking place in September in Devon.

Joss, who owns a house in Culmstock, Devon, has joined the NSPCC’s Child’s Voice Appeal alongside chairman, Somerset businesswoman and TV ‘dragon’ Deborah Meaden.

All money raised will go towards expanding ChildLine South West, one of the UK’s smallest ChildLine bases, located in Exeter.

The 25-mile challenge walk on Sunday September 27 begins and ends at Bicton College near Budleigh Salterton in East Devon.

Joss said: “I hope this hike raises a huge amount of awareness for the NSPCC.

“Twenty-five miles is a long way but it’s nice to know people are willing to do so much and work so hard to help the NSPCC’s work with vulnerable children and young people.”

Last year a third of calls from distressed children in the South-West went unanswered.

The Child’s Voice Appeal aims to expand the service to text and online services, as well as training more councillors to answer calls, which cost just £4 each.
