Chancellor George Osborne has added £26,000 to the Norwood budget - the proceeds from his appearance at a Young Norwood current affairs reception in London.
Interviewed by Times columnist Daniel Finkelstein, Mr Osborne defended the rise in tuition fees and gave his views on the coalition government, the bailout of the Irish economy and charity funding. More than 250 young people attended.
Speaking afterwards, Mr Osborne praised Norwood as "one of the best charities I've come across in Britain. I think it does an absolutely brilliant job for all sorts of people who need help."
