AN OFFICIAL fund has been set up by the Sussex Community Foundation for people who want to make donations following the Shoreham Airshow crash.
The foundation set up the JustGiving page on behalf of Adur District Council, West Sussex County Council and Worthing Borough Council.
The move followed the community’s response to the tragedy and ensures money given will be properly monitored.
Neil Hopkins, head of communications at Adur and Worthing Councils, said: “Many people have come forward expressing a wish to make a financial donation for those affected by the Shoreham Airshow tragedy.”
Miranda Kemp, the foundation’s communications manager, added: “Sussex Community Foundation has opened a fund for those wishing to make a donation in support of the people and communities affected by the Shoreham Airshow incident.
“This appeal is being managed by Sussex Community Foundation, a registered charity which manages funds and gives grants to local communities in Sussex.
“The charity will manage all donations and ensure that the funds reach those people who need it most. The costs of managing the appeal are being met by Adur district and Worthing borough councils and West Sussex County Council.”
