Dinner with Hugh Grant?

Anyone who makes any donation between now and Monday night can win the chance to have dinner with Hugh Grant.

Hugh Grant is best known as one of Britain's most successful actors, but for the last few years he's also been a high profile member of the campaign group Hacked Off.

Here's why Hugh is making this offer, in his own words:

"I am not a Lib Dem, a Tory a Labourite or anything in particular but I recognise political guts when I see it. And I know Nick Clegg was prepared to stand up to the Tories when they wanted to ignore or water down the Leveson Report. For that he gets a lot of abuse in the Tory press. But he was right to do it. And the manifesto is very clear, not only that Leveson should be delivered, but that it should be done while boosting investigative journalism with more protections.

So I am happy to help make this election a fairer fight.

I can bore to death any lucky winner of this draw on the detail of the Leveson Report and effect of section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013. Or we can just talk about me and all my problems."

So there you go. It really couldn't be simpler. If you make any donation to the Lib Dems between now and Monday evening, you and a friend could win the chance to go to dinner with Hugh Grant.
