Actress Joanna Lumley has helped to create a chutney that will go on sale as part of her efforts to support the Gurkhas.
She has worked with food company Sharwood to produce the limited edition Mango and Kashmiri Chilli chutney.
She launched the product at the Harvey Nichols store in London before it is rolled out to supermarkets in September.
Sharwood's will donate 10p from each jar sold to the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
Last year the actress, whose father was an officer in the Gurkha regiment, fronted a campaign which changed government policy to allow Gurkhas who served in the Army before 1997 to settle in Britain.
