Great news, as much about the sentiment as the financial support:
The Conservatives received the most funds, £6.4 million, and celebrated their wide donation base, with Mr Rowland’s the only six figure sum received by the party.
He said: “I made the donation as a result of my passionate concern for liberty and the economic future of Britain. We need fresh ideas, national renewal and above all a Government that sets the people free.
“I feel strongly that the Conservatives under the leadership of David Cameron are the party that will deliver that. They are the best hope for this country’s future.”
