Money has poured in to charities and funds set up to help. But as Donna Ferguson writes, make sure it goes directly to the causes you support
After the terror came goodwill and compassion. As communities in Manchester and London struggled to come to terms with the recent terrorist attacks, there has been an upsurge in donations to help those affected.
The official We Love Manchester fund, set up by the lord mayor and the British Red Cross, has raised more than £10m for the victims of the Manchester attack, while a second pool, the UK Solidarity Fund, was established to support those affected in both London and Manchester, as well as victims of any future incidents across the UK.
