DAVID and Simon Reuben, who head one of Britain’s wealthiest families, have given $100m (£56m) to their charitable fund.

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, has given away $26 billion (£14.6 billion) to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which hopes to eradicate diseases in the developing world."
