London Bombings Relief victims aid doubled

London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund

Evening Standard Headline - Bombings Relief FundThe London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund for the victims of July's deadly bombings in London said today that it will double aid payments to those worst affected and is working on further relief packages.

John Stoker, chief executive of the fund, said: "We are working on more assistance packages to help with the full needs of victims of the bombings and their families as they emerge over time and we plan to announce those soon.".

The fund will give families of the dead a further £5,000 on top of the £5,000 they received a fortnight after the attacks.

This is great news and we sincerely hope that the £11,000 we have already raised and sent (as of 26th August) through Tube Relief will be helping the total fund. We're condfident that we will make our target of £20,000 and if you would like to contribute to the fund please, please sponsor one of the many people who took part in the challenge last Thursday. Even though I was blogging the whole event, I managed to take part in a little bit myself, so if you feel like making a donation that would be great. Thanks.
