Prince Charles has shown his support for Britain's Jewish community by attending the annual World Jewish Relief fundraising dinner at London's The Conservatory which raised over £1.5m.

The Prince Of Wales spoke at the dinner of his admiration of British Jews and the contribution they have to society.

The Royal is a patron of World Jewish Relief's Krakow Community Centre Project in Poland which offers help and support for improvised Jews in the country.

Speaking of Prince Charles attending the event, Nigel Layton, chairman of World Jewish Relief said: "I am so very proud that our Community Centre in Krakow, the brainchild of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, is now nearing completion.  Whilst we await its completion, we have already begun to invest in programmes for young and old alike. Krakow soon will become known throughout the Jewish world not just for its tragic Jewish past but also for its vibrant Jewish present."
