"The UK government is now the largest bilateral donor after increasing its £15m donation to £50m."
Just seen this on BBC News
(that's on top of the £23 million already donated by the British People)
Sorry make that British Public have donated £25 million so far
" Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said the Queen would be donating a "substantial amount" to agencies of which she is patron. " ... wonder what that means
Dunno, but it better be substantial too.
£25 million from the public is amazing!! Have we ever raised that much so quickly for anything else do you think?
I can't remember anything quite so horrific in my lifetime.
The public's generosity has thankfully shamed the government into upping its donation.
I still can't believe that our Government needed to be shamed by it's people into giving more. But I'm glad they have.
I find it amazing and humbling that the Mozambique government have also made a donation .. it is symbolic at hundred thousand dollars .. but they are the poorest nation in the world supposedly
Isn't it often the way that those who have the least are the most generous? Indonesia itself is also raising as much money and aid as it can. Also, when on that page, click on the link about the python for an amazing rescue story.
