Donations to the Find Madeleine McCann fund fell from almost £2million to £650,000 in just one year, it was revealed yesterday.

Only cash received in libel payouts to friends of Gerry and Kate McCann – dubbed the Tapas Seven – enabled the search for their daughter to go on, latest accounts show.

Around £260 an hour flooded into the Fund as a wave of public sympathy swept the UK after Maddie's abduction in Praia da Luz in the Algarve in May, 2007.

It had £1.4million in bank donations alone in the first ten months of the search.

But contributions fell away after the McCanns became one-time suspects. And the Fund's income dropped to £629,181 in the year up to 31 March 2009 – while spending rose from £815,113 to more than £1million.

Outgoings covered investigators, publicity and the pair's legal fight against Portuguese policeman Goncalo Amaral.

Kate and Gerry, both 41, have been granted a temporary injunction on his book claiming Maddie, three, died the day she went missing.

The couple's friends were paid £375,000 in October 2008 after false newspaper allegations about them.

In a foreword to the accounts lodged at Companies House, Fund chairman, Gerry’s brother John, said: "Rather than accepting libel damages, the friends requested a donation was made to the fund. This has enabled us to continue our search for Madeleine."

Donations fell from 2285 million euros to 743 thousand euros in one year

Donations to the 'Find Madeleine' fund have reached the lowest level since the girl disappeared in Praia da Luz on 3 May 2007.

According to the 'Mirror' newspaper website, donations fell, in the space of a year, from about 2285 million euros to 743 thousand euros.

"Only cash received in libel payouts to friends of Gerry and Kate McCann – dubbed the Tapas Seven – enabled the search for their daughter to go on," reveals the newspaper.

After the disappearance of Maddie McCann, donations arrived at a rate of 297 thousand euros per hour, and after ten months the fund had grown to 1.6 million euros.

However, donations started to fall after the McCanns were constituted as arguidos in the criminal investigation, now archived.

Up to 31 March 2009, the accounts show that the fund's income had dropped to 718 thousand euros, during which period spending rose to one million euros. Spending focused on private investigators, advertising campaigns and in the judicial proceedings of the family against Gonçalo Amaral.
