The kindness of Mail readers
GENEROUS Daily Mail readers are showing their support for the Mobiles for Manchester appeal.
Readers have donated phones and sent money to the Mail’s appeal to help those affected by the Manchester bombing.
Survivors and community leaders have rallied behind the appeal since its launch last weekend.
They include Manchester United legend Bryan Robson, Bishop of Manchester David Walker and survivor Caroline Davis, who was seriously injured and whose best friend Wendy Fawell was among the 22 killed.
The Mail has asked readers to donate unwanted mobile phones to be re-used or recycled to raise money for those left injured and bereaved.
All the money raised will go to charity, with the bulk going to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and a portion to be sent to inter-faith groups to help communities unite against terror and tackle prejudice and hatred.
The Mail has teamed up with Carphone Warehouse, which has agreed to accept mobiles in its 1,000 stores across the country and to donate all the money raised to the Mail’s appeal. Any phone can be donated, no matter how old or damaged, although its value will vary depending on age and condition.
Carphone Warehouse has generously donated 1,000 phones, with a value of £25,000, and all money generated from donated phones will go to the Mail’s appeal.
Thanks to public support, more than £5.5million has already been donated to the We Love Manches- ter fund, run by Manchester City Council in conjunction with the British Red Cross.
IF you would like to donate your unwanted phone to the Mobiles for Manchester appeal, please follow this stepby-step guide: 1. Find your local Carphone Warehouse. 2. Back up any personal data from your phone to your computer. 3. UNLINK your phone from

On arrival, tell a sales consultant you would like to donate a phone to Mobiles for Manchester, and they will process it. 6.
If your phone still turns on, they may be able to delete data from it for you. Phones which cannot be turned on will be destroyed for recycling. All the money generated will be donated to charity.
