Catherine Zeta Jones has offered a pair of her shoes for auction to raise money for the fund set up in April Jones's name. The Hollywood star signed a pair of golden high heels that she wore for a premiere.

Five-year-old April Jones disappeared from Machynlleth seven weeks ago.

Despite an extensive police search there has been no sign of her. Mark Bridger has been charged with her murder.

Donations to April's Fund have already reached £40,000. The shoes and a signed photograph of the actress will be auctioned off later this month.

The Swansea-born actress is well known for her charity work. She is a patron of The Noah's Ark Appeal and opened Cardiff children's hospital in 2006. Appearing there last week Catherine said: "I truly believe that the human nature of giving is unrelenting - even in dark financial times"
