Alan Barnes Fund

£330,125 of £500 goal

Raised by 24,800 people in 20 months
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.

Poor Alan Barnes being vilified by gullible ignorant people. He took less than half the money raised for him on this page. A month after Katie Cutler engaged a PR company to raise her prfile which they did with four months of hard work. Alan had to sell his first house as he couldn't afford the maintenance costs. Now joe public expect him to pay 4400 outstanding bill that Katie has ignored for a year. SHAME!

Replacement for social housing Having heard how generous people on line were to the disabled chap, Alan Barnes from the NE I sat to thought why not crowd fund housing in Lincolnshire and elsewhere as a housing Charity Trust? There would be many problems to overcome but I believe if we could get 200,000 or generous people in Lincolnshire to contribute say £10 each to build our own social housing. Never mind this mean local and national government.

I feel sorry for all the Michael Riley's out there as this clown is saying what he is just to gain attention as he has remained anonymous and does not have the balls to make himself known. People get wound up very easily and will start searching the net for people called Michael Riley. Just ignore the twat, probably not his real moniker anyway :-)
