The Daily Mail set up a fund to pay for a new legal team to represent Al. To date this fund has reached approximately £800k. The generosity of the public has been described by Al and the family as extremely humbling. The Daily Mail fund has now been paused while the new legal team progress Al’s case.

There are two fundraising accounts available if you wish to support Al and his family with a donation.

A group of Royal Marines’ mums have set up a JustGiving fundraising page to support Al and his family. This fund is supported by the Royal Marines Association. You can donate online via the RM Mum’s JustGiving page using the link below.

The Royal Marines Association has also set up a fund to support Al and his family. Please make any cheques payable to the Royal Marines Association and do not forget to mark them FAO Alexander Blackman. Please send cheques to:

Royal Marines Association Central Office
Building 32
HMS Excellent
Whale Island

Thank you so much for your generosity.
