Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban donated to help the victims of Austrailian bushfires

Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban have donated A$500,000 (£228,278) to help the victims of the Australian bushfires.

The couple made the gesture – via satellite link - on a TV charity appeal for the Red Cross.

‘As Australians, I think the biggest thing is that no matter where you are in the world, we support each other and we rally,’ said Nicole, 41.

‘That's why we wanted to show our support and we would like to donate half a million dollars on behalf of our family to the families that need it now.’

Almost 200 people have died and 1,000 homes have been destroyed since the blazes broke out in Australia’s Victoria state earlier this month.

Nicole and Keith, 41, are currently in the US.
