To date, they have collected £2,273,765 of which £765,681 was donated by the public. Whilst this is a fantastic achievement, they are keen to raise additional funds to be spent in response to the most pressing and ongoing needs, for example psychosocial support to deal with trauma, medical supplies, and equipment. They would very much welcome the continued support and generosity of Islanders to help raise more money for sorely needed resources.
Please consider holding a fundraiser in your business to support the wider appeal – any donations, no matter how small or large, will be gratefully accepted.
