Glasgow City Council is opening an appeal fund for people who were affected by the incident in Queen Street and George Square last Monday.

The council is donating £20,000 and the Lord Provost’s Goodwill Fund is also donating £20,000.

The quickest and simplest way to donate is by calling 0141 287 7878 and paying by debit or credit card.

Lines will be open Monday-Friday 8am-8pm but will be closed for the public holidays over Christmas and New Year. It will close on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, reopening on December 27 and closing again for January 1 and 2.

Donations to The Lord Provost’s Queen Street Fund can also be made at any bank using Sort Code 834400 and Account Number 10809775.

Anyone in need of support can call the council’s dedicated helpline 0141 287 0999.

Lord Provost Sadie Docherty said: “We have had tremendous offers of support already. Glaswegians started calling us to offer donations almost as soon as this tragic incident happened.

“That’s heart-warming but not surprising in a city which responds so well to tragedy.”
