An Incredible Show Of Support For The Nancy Glen Campaign!

In less than a week the Clyde Fisherman Trust Nancy Glen Campaign has raised over £130,000.

Support is coming in from far and wide as people picked up the tags #TT100bringtheboyshome, #TT100bringourboyshome  linking to the Just Giving, Go Fund Me and Crowdfunding donation pages and being tweeted, shared, retweeted as much as possible to raise awareness of the campaign.

Social media is a hive of activity and the response is incredible!

The Facebook Group All Things Tarbert Currently has a steady stream of posts as people share ideas and try to do whatever they can to help.

Local businesses have also set up donation boxes in their shops.

The Tweeting on Twitter is constant, I’m sure many of us are struggling to keep up with the notifications!

Behind all the social media noise is a devastated community, heartbroken friends and family that will not give up until they have brought them home.

Charity auctions are being set up, raffles and other fund raising ideas are in the pipeline, words of support from all over the world.

A Facebook page has now been set up to enable people to keep track of what is happening and where, so please do like and follow

The Nancy Glen Fundraising Page.

A spokesman said: “Fishing is more than just a political issue, it’s people’s lives and in this instance so many who find their world so tragically turned upside down.

“The fund hopes to raise enough to recover the men and allow their families comfort in being able to lay their loved ones to rest after such a horrible and tragic event.

“The Clyde Fishermen’s Association also continues to engage with our Royal Navy and hopes they can help the recovery with their specialist deep water equipment.”

If you can help in any way, by sharing on social media or sending in a donation it would be very much appreciated.
