Zeta Jones NSPCC ambassador
Zeta Jones NSPCC ambassador

Actress Catherine Zeta Jones is to become an ambassador for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

The Oscar-winning star and mother-of-two will spearhead the charity's Full Stop appeal in her native Wales.

She said: "My childhood in Wales was a very happy one. However, I know that not all children are so lucky and I therefore want to do all I can, especially as a parent myself, to help keep them free from harm.

"Wales is still my home and I am delighted to be part of the NSPCC's very important work across the country."

Zeta Jones and husband Michael Douglas have two children - Dylan, five, and Carys, two.

The actress has stayed close to her Welsh roots and recently built a £2 million home in Swansea, where she grew up.

The Full Stop campaign aims to end cruelty to children. Launched in 1999, it hopes to raise £250 million for the cause.

Stanley Thomas, chairman of the Full Stop appeal in Wales, said: "I am thrilled that Catherine has decided to lend her support."
