Appeal in memory of the tragic children
Following the tragic deaths of 16 children in the Dunblane shooting, The Daily Record has launched an appeal in memory of the victims of the Dunblane shooting. It is for the community of Dunblane in conjunction with the Victims of Crime Trust. With the help of their readers, the newspaper will donate a minimum of £75,000.
Terry Quinn, Editor of the Daily Record, said:
"The whole of Scotland is in mourning. They will want to create something in lasting memory of these inocent victims of a senseless massacre. I am sure Daily Record readers will respond in their normal positive manner by backing our worthwhile appeal."
Norman Brennan, chairman of the Victims of Crime Trust , announced his organisation was putting £5,000 into the fund.
Mr Brennan said: "I am delighted that my group are involved with the Daily Record in launching this appeal."

If any of you are able, we would be most grateful if you could give this some coverage or even a link.

As a war correspondent, covering eight wars world wide, I witnessed so many inocent victims and so many children among them, but I always found myself failing to take it as a cold blooded professional journalist. The senseless massacre of your little ones was the same experience. My thoughts are with their grieving mothers and fathers.
Unfortunately, I'm afraid I couldn't participate in your
humanitarian action sending donation to The Daily Record
Dunblane Donation Fund.
That's why I create this web page instead,
to inocent victims and to their parents
with deep condolence and understanding .
