Prince gives cash to abbey appeal
Prince Charles has given a "substantial" donation to the Tewkesbury Abbey Restoration Appeal.

Abbey officials will not reveal how much he has given, but said it was a significant boost as they attempt to raise 2m.

So far they have raised 710,000 which will help repair the tower and fix the guttering which is leaking water.

The prince, who owns Highgrove near Tetbury, told parishioners of his fondness for the historic building.
