According to the newly-released accounts for Madeleine's Fund for year ending March 2014, the Fund received another £400,000, 'donated' in connection with Kate McCann's book.
The accounts do not give any information regarding the source of this 'donation', but it is accounted for under Restricted Funds, in a similar manner to the £550,000 'donated' by News International in 2011 for newspaper serialisation rights of the book.
The 'donor' has placed restrictions on how the money may be spent.
Who knows, perhaps the book is destined for the silver screen.
But it's already proved worth its weight in gold.
