Please read the LEGAL BIT below before donating! The money is actually going to The Trussell Trust :)
As you may have heard by now, Katie Olivia Hopkins has been forced to file for a form of insolvency due to a lengthy court case for libel involving the food blogger Jack Monroe.
Nobody wants to see someone of Katie's stature and good standing in financial dire straights, so we are trying to raise £100,000 to help get her back on her feet.
Please give generously.
LEGAL BIT: We're actually going to give the money to The Trussell Trust - a FANTASTIC cause who help to provide foodbanks all over the UK. Because irony ... REMEMBER TO GIFT AID!!!!
This charity is just one organisation to feel the wrath of her tw*ttery in recent years, so naturally we are happy to help.
This initiative is 100% the work of Southend News Network, with all funds being donated to The Trussell Trust through the JustGiving platform. Although they will be receiving all of your lovely donations and hopefully a tonne of Gift Aid, this is NOT an official Trussell Trust campaign.
