Music mogul Simon Cowell has donated $80,000 to a fund for those affected by the UK riots.

The 51-year-old talent show judge is one of the many celebrities who have come forward to help the clean-up process.

He is leading the way with a $80,000 donation and is happy to help the initiative, reported Daily Express online.

"A lot of families and businesses desperately need some help right now and I back any campaign which achieves this," said Cowell.

Opera singer Katherine Jenkins, who is also pulling funds to help people in London, said, "Since the riots we've seen communities pull together. 'Reclaim Our Streets' is a way we can play a part in rebuilding our beautiful country."
