The Sun's Fund For Beslan Kids has been receiving generous donations from readers and celebrities alike.

GBP 10,000 has come from Elton alone, the paper reported on September 9, 2004. He called the recent Russian hostage crisis, in which hundreds died,  the ''most devastating and upsetting thing'' he has ever seen.

Prince Charles, Paul McCartney, Richard Branson, Cliff Richard, the Osbournes and the Beckhams have written out cheques as well. The appeal was set up to alleviate family members' pain.
