Bobby Davro recorded the special song to raise awareness about child safety issues.

Bobby and six pupils made up the main group for the recording, with a St Andrew's backing choir. The single was released to raise funds to help the Kids Taskforce.

"When songwriter David Martin first played me the missdorothy song, I was drawn to the project. If my support can help raise the profile of the Kids Taskforce Charity and their efforts to promote child safety, then we have achieved something."
Bobby Davro

'missdorothy.com' is a song about Dot Com - a freckle-faced tomboy who's the charity's mascot and features on the missdorothy.com website. Songwriter David Martin, who also wrote the Barry Manilow hit 'Canít Smile Without You', was inspired to write the song after hearing about the Dot and the work of missdorothy.com.

Under the banner of the Kids Taskforce, the missdorothy.com website and the Learning programme are endorsed by the government, leading safety agencies and the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund (UK). It's currently being taught in many schools around the country and more are being encouraged to use it. There are over 20,000 children who visit the site each day, to read her Diary, Dot News, and find out about her latest adventures travelling inside the internet!

At present there is no national standard for the information delivered to children on safety in primary or secondary schools. Sharon Doughty, the head of the Kids Taskforce, is a former BBC, Sky and ITV newsreader and set up the Taskforce to make childrenís lives safer. It's a partnership between professional footballers and Britainís fire and police chiefs that aims to get vital safety messages to every child in the country.

"We are hoping to set a national standard for the safety advice given to youngsters about everything from safety on the internet, crossing the road and healthy eating to drugs and knife crime" says Sharon. "By teaching youngsters how to manage risk and assist their decision-making in situations of potential danger we are empowering them for their future."
