London shipbroker raises funds for UK victims of terrorism

Campaign aims to raise £2,000 for those affected by terrorism in Britain

FOLLOWING the terrorist attack in London on Saturday evening, one shipbroker has called on the London shipbroking community to come together and show their support for the victims of terrorism in the city.

Riverlake Shipping’s Nick Coulson set up a justgiving page to funnel donations from London’s shipbroking community to the British Red Cross Society’s UK Solidatory Fund, which provides relief to those affected by terrorism in the UK.

Mr Coulson told Lloyd’s List by email that the campaign was the result of him arriving at his desk this morning and wondering what he could to help in the wake of the attack.

“Borough market is a popular venue for London shipbrokers for entertaining and a meeting place for many of us. Any of us could have been affected by this awful event,” he said.

“The British Red Cross provided me with exactly the vehicle to try and help through its Solidarity Fund. l just felt that we as a community may like the opportunity to help out the people as individuals and/or companies.”

Mr Coulson said that a number of broker firms have pledged their support, and that he hopes to drum up further support for the London shipbroking community.

Donate to the campaign on justgiving here.
