London Comes Together To Support Grenfell Tower Residents

Grenfell Tower Fire Latimer Road

A horrific fire swept through the 24-storey Grenfell Tower flats in west London on Tuesday night.

Containing 120 flats, and home to over four hundred Londoners, residents fled for their lives, many in just their night clothes, leaving all their possessions behinnd. Sadly, it’s believed that many were unable to escape the fire that, according to reports, suddenly and rapidly spread upwards from the second floor via the exterior cladding.

Now Londoners are coming together to support those left homeless by the disaster, many of whom are still trying to learn if their neighbours, friends and family members are safe. Many impromptu refuge centres have already been overwhelmed by donations, so if you want to lend your support, please check the location’s Twitter accounts first.
