Diary News - March Of The Billionaires

The UK's 117 billionaires are doing very nicely, and have increased their wealth substantially through the recession, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

Among those who have made their mark are the Sixth Duke of Westminster, worth £8.56billion.  He inherited the Grosvenor Estate, 300 acres of Mayfair and Belgravia.  His second daughter Lady Edwina is married to the award winning TV historian Dan Snow.

Among his charitable activities, The Duke's interest in military volunteering is manifest in the Duke Of Westminster's Awards, which are won by outstanding cadets who overcome adversity, help in the community, and go on to educational and work opportunities.

Jim Davidson and his wife Michelle hosted the first fundraising ball of Care After Combat, the charity he has formed with Derek 'Smokey' Cole, Simon Weston and Gary 'Goose' Cryer.

Supporters dined on glazed tilapia, crunchy papaya salad...
