Woolwich: Help For Heroes Raises £100,000
« on: May 25, 2013, 08:37:07 AM »
This could go into world news - I think it fits better here.

Tens of thousands of pounds have been donated to Help for Heroes fund-raising pages set up in the wake of Drummer Lee Rigby's murder.

The soldier was wearing one of the charity's tops when he was killed in Woolwich, south-east London, on Wednesday.

Hundreds of tributes have been paid to the 25-year-old on two Help for Heroes JustGiving pages, which together have collected more than £100,000 in his memory.

One donation, from Chris Walsh, came alongside a message saying: "For Drummer Rigby. We did not know you, but your senseless passing deeply upset our family. May you rest in peace."

Another said: "In memory of Drummer Rigby. You fought to protect your country. I just wish we could have protected you Lee from the cowards who hurt you. RIP soldier Rigby, you will never be forgotten."

Good.  I am sure his family we will appreciate it.
