Prince Charles has helped raise more than £0.5m for British farmers affected by the F&M crisis.
The Prince has donated £100,000 which has been matched by the Duke of Westminster.
He has also encouraged firms such as Asda, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose to make contributions, along with the Co-operative, Musgrave, Booths, Unilever, Cadbury Schweppes and food service distributor 3663.
The total donation, which now stands at £620,000, will be used to help those whose livelihoods have been affected, especially farmers unable to sell livestock or pay bills and those who need advice, help and support.
“The re-emergence of foot-and-mouth, the impact of the flooding this summer and now the cases of bluetongue, have created a real crisis which will be felt for months to come,” said Prince Charles.
