Katie Cutler, who raised more than £330,000 for disabled pensioner Alan Barnes after he was mugged on his doorstep, is launching her own charitable foundation, the Katie Cutler Foundation.

Commenting on the launch, Cutler said: “Now it’s time for my biggest fund raising challenge ever. Between now and September my goal is to raise £1,000,000 and to help at least 20 people through Katie’s “Acts Of Kindness.”

The move follows Katie setting up an online fundraising page for 67-year-old Alan after reading about his attack, which raised a staggering £330,000 in a matter of weeks and she is hoping to continue collecting donations and changing lives.

Alan is now in the process of buying a new house with the proceeds.
