Help devastated families of 39 Essex Lorry Deaths

The death of 39 young people in the Essex lorry deaths has left behind families that are not only devastated by their loss but are now also burdened with huge debts that will take them many years of extreme hardship to pay back.

The BBC have reported that the families, on average, are likely to have had to raise £14,000 each. Whilst we can not do anything for their grief, we would, at least, like to help ease their crippling financial burden. The money raised will be divided equally between the 39 victims and paid to their family (living parents and, where applicable, victim's partner).

Whilst I have no personal connection with the victims or any of their families, I feel the cause is a worthy one and that the victims families deserve our compassion and some relief from their financial hardship. I will NOT withdraw any funds personally but will look towards to transferring the funds to some publicly recognised body such as the British Home Office, who are above approach and can ensure the funds will go directly to the families concerned.
