Pop singer Kim and wrester Big Daddy are just two of the many celebrities who will be taking pledges in the phone-in appeal which last year raised over £1m. BBC1, Radios 1, 2, 3 and 4 and local radio link up for the appeal. Among the other stars taking part will be Terry Wogan, Gloria Hunniford, James Hunt, Lulu, Adam Ant and Petula Clark.
