After raising approximately $24.5 million, the “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund” is set to distribute $324,000 to each family of the Manchester bombing victims.  

The emergency fund was created after 22 people were killed during a terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

The fund’s Chair of Trustees, Sue Murphy, says, "The payments will ensure the families benefit from the phenomenal outpouring of public support following the attack." She continued, "The city and the world responded with such extreme kindness, generosity and solidarity in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack."

Murphy added, “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.”

According to Billboard, “bereaved families have already been able to claim £70,000 each from the fund, or around $90,065, along with access to free counseling.”
