Let's do something nice for Ashraf Haziq (+others)

Ashraf Haziq is the lad who was robbed as he lay bleeding in the street during the London riots. It was a shameful way for a guest in our country to be treated and the incident projected a pretty crap image of the UK around the world. Thousands and thousands of people from across the UK and around the world used this site to donate money so that something nice could be done for Ashraf.

The final figure raised was £23,221

Well done everybody.

Handing over the cash to Ashraf

The final figure raised by the somethingniceforashraf campaign was £23,221.

We finally got to meet Ashraf at the Malaysian Embassy. He is a lovely lad and wished to express how touched he was by the many gestures of support he had received through this campaign and others. He hasn’t yet decided what he intends to spend the money on. Ashraf was particularly keen to make sure that some of the money raised goes to other riot victims and has put aside £5,000 for this use. A notice on how this money will be spent will be posted on this site.

Once again, an enormous thank you to everyone who supported the campaign.
