R.I.P. Alan Henning Fund
A fund for the children of Alan Henning.
I have set up this page for people to pledge a donation to Alan Henning's family at this terrible time.
I have had donations and messages from far and wide, which is absolutely amazing.
If Alan had one wish it would be for his family to be financially secure in the future. Every penny of this fund will go to his children. Barbara Henning, Alan's wife has given this fundraising account her approval and support. She has said that she would like the money to go directly to her and Alan's two teenage children.
Please donate, however little you can afford, it will all help.
R.I.P. Alan, you were a true hero!
The grand total after gofundme took out their percentage and all the other monies were added, was a wonderful £15,791.06
I can't thank you all enough for your overwhelming generosity!
£10 cheque from S.G.North
£500 donation from A.S.Metallurgy Ltd ( http://alexstewartinternational.com)
£200 donation from AFC Monton from the celebrity football match on 19.10.14 ( http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/montonamateursfc) The game was also featured on BBC and ITN news.
£322 from a raffle held at AFC Monton's celebrity match, which is thanks to many prize donations from local and national businesses
£200 from AFC Monton Charity game
£100 cheque from Unison
£1011.98 from pupils and staff at Walkden High School, from a non-uniform day
There is also £87 in a PayPal account
Many, many thanks once again
I will be running a raffle on the day and I am in the process of gathering prizes for the raffle. So, if you have anything that you could donate, please contact me and I can arrange to have it picked up before Sunday.
Also, if anybody would like to come along and volunteer to do face painting, that would be fab. You would however, need to have your own paints
Many, many thanks!
Hero , brave , everything the British stand for ISIS you are weak and you will be nailed xxxx
RIP Gadget you will never be forgotten. Please support this fund , as although we can never bring Alan back to his family. Let's do something to make a difference to his family in their darkest hour, as he did for all the Syrian children xxx
I am promoting this fund via SalfordOnline.com and Salford Council with the ladies at Walkden Community agroup. I'm so proud of the generosity shown by everyone. It really is humbling. From old ladies to single mums, everyone should be so proud. I'm sure Alan is looking down with pride at his community with gratitude. Thank you all so much. Let's get to £10,000!
