A band of campaigners from Dorset have joined celebrities to rally against world hunger.

They've joined the "Big If" march in Hyde Park this afternoon (Saturday 8th June).

They want the government to raise the issue and take action at the next G8 summit.

20 year old local Oxfam campaigner Dot Drayton from Bridport told Wessex-FM David Beckham and Myleene Klass support them too.

"We have been campaigning on the Enough Food IF campaign locally throughout the year.  I'm really excited to be going down to London to meet other Oxfam campaigners from across the country and other supporters from other charities.  It will be brilliant to be involved on a national level as so far we have been involved locally and it will good to be part of a bigger event with a huge impact."
