Chancellor Gordon Brown can expect a deluge of emails from children over the next few weeks demanding that he do more to "end child poverty". TV and radio presenter June Sarpong and a group of children and young people from London launched an e-card campaign last week. The project has been organised by End Child Poverty, which has been formed by 12 charities including Barnardo's, the NSPCC and Save the Children.

It aims to keep the Government to its pledge to end child poverty in the UK by 2020. The charity hopes a million children will send the card to the chancellor over the next few months.
