Grenfell Tower Appeal
The following is a message from our colleagues at The London Community Foundation:
The London Community Foundation is enormously grateful to all those from the UK Community Foundations network who have offered support in the aftermath of this devastating incident.
We have had an incredible response to our appeal so far and now have more than £2 million in donated funds to distribute to the community. We are working with local authorities to coordinate relief efforts and make sure funds get to where they are most needed.
We are working with local authorities to coordinate relief efforts and make sure funds get to where they are most needed. So far, we have distributed grants to local community groups who are providing shelter for families and we will continue to ensure that the community affected is supported with immediate relief - as well as any long-term assistance required to rebuild their lives following this tragedy. We anticipate that the community will soon need furniture and assistance with rehoming costs, funeral costs and legal advice, so we will continue to fundraise to meet these needs.
If anyone you know would like to support our relief programme for the residents and their families, please direct them to donate through one of these channels:
- Please direct everyone to the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund website where possible – www.dispossessedfund.org.uk
- People can also pay directly into our bank account via BACS – Bank details are CAF BANK, Sort Code: 405240, Acc No: 00009331
- Or Text Donate by texting GREN88 and the amount (e.g. GREN88 £10) to 70070 - eg GREN88 £5 (people can donate £1 £2 £3 £4 £5 or £10)
- Or send a cheque to LCF at 9 Brighton Terrace, London SW9 8DJ (please ask them to write Grenfell Tower appeal on the back of the cheque).
