JUST a few days ago, we reported how upset but defiant Harlow resident Carly Burd was after her allotment off Hobtoe Road had been vandalised.

Carly was filmed in tears when she discovered that salt had been thrown over the food she had planted.

Now Carly’s GoFundMe page has (as of 0800 hrs this morning) raised over £146,000!

Her story has been covered all over the world from Sky News to the New York Times.

There have been contributions all over the world including former England football star and TV pundit, Gary Lineker.

People have responded not only to Carly’s plight but also Carly’s charitable cause of one person just trying to feed thousands of people across Harlow.

Well done Carly.
