DRAGON’S Den tycoon Touker Suleyman is the latest star to back The Sun’s Earthquake Appeal.

His gift of £100,000 will go directly to fund Red Cross efforts in devastated Turkey and Syria.

That donation alone will be enough to provide emergency food for 400 families for ten days.

The TV favourite, 69, was born into a Turkish-Cypriot family and moved to England aged five.

He went to school in Peckham, South London, before going on to make his fortune in textiles.
