Singer Charlotte Church has thrown her weight behind a campaign to raise money for armed forces charities in Britain.
The former child star is backing the DecAid Appeal, which aims to mark the 10th anniversary of the conflict in Afghanistan this year (11) by raising $560,000 (£350,000) with a mountain-climbing expedition by under-25s in her native Wales.
She says, "It is so important to support our armed forces after everything they have done in Afghanistan over the past 10 years.
"I would encourage everyone to get behind DecAid which is doing so much to encourage people of our age group to show their support for our brave service men and women."
