The online fund to help disabled pensioner Alan Barnes after he was mugged last week has been halted by his family, the woman who set it up has said. Over £329,000 has been raised for Alan after beautician Katie Cutler set up a fundraising page six days ago, she say his family are very grateful.
There will be a presentation in due course when a cheque will be handed over to the 4ft 6in visually-impaired 67-year-old.
Ms Cutler, 21, wrote on the Alan Barnes Fund page:
Good morning, after speaking with Alan & his family, they have asked me to stop any further donations to his fund.
He is very grateful for all your love, support & donations.
