Alan Barnes: Disabled Pensioner Meets Fundraiser As Fund Passes £317K

Yesterday Inquisitr reported on the story of Alan Barnes a disabled pensioner from Gateshead in England. Mr Barnes who is partially sighted and disabled was attacked outside his home by a thug who knocked him to the ground whilst attempting to rob him. Mr Barnes who is only 4’6″ tall sustained a broken collar bone in the fall and is too frightened to return to his home after the attack.

Mr Barnes story was seen by beautician Katie Cutler who lives nearby. She was so moved by his story that she set up a GoFundMe appeal in an attempt to raise £500 ($750) to help Alan Barnes to move to new premises. To everyones amazement Mr Barnes story has touched people across the world. By yesterday people across the world had donated an amazing $300,000 in just three days. Incredibly the Mirror reports that the fund shows absolutely no signs of slowing down.
