One Love Manchester has raised an awful lot of money for terror victims

One Love Manchester has raised an awful lot of money for terror victims
The aim of the One Love Manchester concert was to raise funds for those affected by the terror attack at an Ariane Grande concert which killed twenty two people, many of them children. It’s been a terrific success, with over £18 million pounds raised. 
Now we know more about how it will be spent. The families of each victim will receive a quarter of a million pounds,  whereas people who were hospitalised will also receive money: everyone affected will get some support. 
Councillor Sue Murphy also clarified things: ” Thanks to this we have raised more than £18m and we were conscious that we had to get some of swiftly this to those with immediate needs… We have therefore given a around third of the total to the bereaved families and £3.5m to those who were hospitalised after the attack. In total this means we have allocated over half of the existing money already.”
“We will now spend some time looking at how we will distribute the rest of the funds. This will be a complex and sensitive process as we will need to assess the long-term impacts of the attack. We will issue an update as soon as we know more.”
