On Sunday night 67 year old Alan Barnes was attacked & knocked to the ground outside his home, on Hillside Place in Low Fell. Alan was born with a number of defects including sight & growth problems after his mother contracted German Measles during Pregnancy. Having been knocked to the ground by the thug who attempted to rob him, he suffered a broken collar bone and has been left extremely distressed. Alan is too frightened to return to his home so with the help of his sister he's looking for new accommodation. I'm trying to raise £500 for Alan which will help him towards the cost of relocating in order for him to feel safe & carry on with his life. After reading his article on the Mirror.co.uk I was so upset that anyone could target a disabled pensioner & be so cruel. We can't take away what has happened but with a little donation we can make the future a prettier one & help towards the cost of his new home. Thank you all.
