Henry Smith MP has thanked the Sussex Community Foundation for setting up a fund for the public to make donations in support of the people and communities affected by the crash at the Shoreham air show on Saturday, 22nd August.
Henry said; “Our thoughts are all with the victims and their families. It’s truly tragic to read of the people who have been taken from us, and of the promise and potential that their friends and families have spoken about.
“I’m grateful for the work of local emergency services in the most difficult of circumstances and the Sussex Community Foundation who have set up dedicated fundraising efforts to help those suffering at this time. Over £12,500 has been raised so far.”
