There are no words to describe the horror of what happened in West London. So many horrible stories emerging from this, each one is a personal tragedy. With the death toll expected to rise we feel helpless for those affected by this. The community in West London, and indeed the rest of the country are uniting to support the people of Grenfell Tower as the survivors struggle and come to terms with re building their lives.

There has been remarkable scenes of the public donating what they can to help these people. Suzzie Bambro from Horsell organised a collection  at a school in Horsell. She spent much of the morning running around trying to find somehere to take the two car loads of donated goods. Suzzie explains why she did this, and gave her thoughts on what happened at Grenfell.

 

www.salvationarmyappeals.org.uk has details of how to donate to help
