On 14th June 2017, there was a horrific and devastating fire at Grenfell Tower, a high rise Council block on the Lancaster West Estate within the borough of Kensington & Chelsea. Some estimates have put the death toll at over 100.
On 21st June 2017, we donated £4,000 to the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation who are raising funds for a collection of charities involved with supporting the residents who are affected by the travesty and their loved ones. The amount was match-funded meaning our donation resulted in £8,000 going towards those in need.
The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation work are co-ordinating charitable donations to organisation such as the Westway Trust who work with Westway Sports Centre, Rugby Portobello Trust, ClementJames Centre, Venture Community Association and the Harrow Club. Some of these charities are working as assistance centres, providing housing needs, emergency funds, health and social care services. They also have volunteers from the Red Cross and other organisations. They provide food, drink and a range of other support services to those affected by the tragedy.
