The appeal launched in the aftermath of the disaster attracted donations worldwide.

The Clutha Appeal Fund was established to support anyone involved in the disaster - including casualties and the families of those who lost their lives.

The Lord Provost's Goodwill Fund made the first £20,000 donation to the fund earlier this week and this has been bolstered by contributions from the Scottish Government and South and North Lanarkshire Councils.

The Celtic FC Foundation and Hunter Foundation have pledged generous donations of £10,000 each.

By this afternoon, contributions from individuals and businesses in Glasgow, across Britain and even overseas saw the total pledged so far reach £100,000.

Lord Provost Sadie Docherty said: "People have responded with incredible warmth and generosity to help those that were caught up in this tragic incident.

"Our city's heartfelt thanks go to every one of them - and also to those who are organising fundraising activities in the weeks and months ahead."

The quickest and simplest way to donate to the Clutha Appeal Fund is by calling 0141 287 7878 and paying by debit or credit card.
