The impact of the appalling accident on the heart of our city will be felt for years to come. Please help us give some support to the victims' families and the survivors.
Birmingham is a city that looks after its own.
That has been proven by the incredible response to the Birmingham Mail’s appeal for funds to help those affected by the dreadful crash on Lee Bank Middleway this weekend.
We know that money cannot bring back those who have died or reverse the life-changing injuries of the survivors.
But what it can do is ease in a small way some of the many issues that the families will face in the days and weeks ahead, as they deal with their loss and hurt.
Donations can help with rent, food, childcare, travel and funeral costs.
The Birmingham Mail has joined forces with the Lord Mayor of Birmingham’s Charity to create a fund to support the families in whatever ways we can.
We will work with the Lord Mayor’s office and West Midlands Police family liaison officers to ensure the funds are channelled to those who need it, but we need the help of everyone in the city to get involved and show the families how much fellow Brummies care for them.
So, if you’ve been touched by the shocking news of Sunday’s appaling accident, and by the stories now emerging of the real human tragedy behind the headlines, please give whatever you can.
