Diane Abbott care package GoFundMe page raises over £5,000 for Hackney charities

Melanie May | 14 June 2017 | News

A GoFundMe page set up to provide MP Diane Abbott with a care package has so far raised over £5,300, with the majority going to local London charities.
Set up by Sophie Duckebox, Hackney resident and comedian, the Diane Abbott Care Package page has so far raised almost £5,500 from 570 people in six days. It was set up after Abbott temporarily withdrew from the Election campaign trail due to ill-health and came under attack from the Conservative Party. According to the GoFundMe page, no more than £100 of the money raised will go on the care package, with the remainder donated to charities operating or based in Hackney.
The charities announced so far are Hackney-based Project Indigo for LGBTQ+ youth, and THE CRIB, a social inclusion/intervention project that works with young people aged between nine and 24. One more yet to be named charity will also receive support.
The campaign has a target of £6,000 and will close on or before 16th June.
Suggestions on the campaign page for the care package include:
