A charity telethon organised by Friday night show Xarabank raised more than €1.32 million in three hours yesterday evening, with donations still coming in.

The funds will go to the Puttinu Cares Foundation, which helps local families cover costs related to receiving vital medical treatment in the UK.

The foundation hopes to add a block of apartments close to central London hospitals to the 12 it already has in Sutton, which it makes available to the families of local children in the care of Royal Marsden Hospital doctors.
