“However, we can look to put in place support for the victims and their families as they eventually come to terms with what has happened and provide some financial support where required.

“Any money raised through this crowdfunding will be disbursed as quickly as possible via an appropriate organisation which can oversee that it is used in the best manner.

“Our thoughts remain with the victims and their families.

“We must not let them be forgotten.”
