    Story

    As the horror of the Grenfell Tower block fire unfolded on Wednesday (June 14) morning, people from across the country started asking what they can do to help those affected.
    It's thought that around 500 people call the Lancaster West Estate high-rise home, and they need help - most of them will have lost everything.
    getwestlondon has launched this JustGiving page, in aid of those affected by the horrific fire.
    Although we'll never be able to replace their loved ones, memories and homes, we can help them rebuild.
    We can show them that there's a whole country of people willing to support them as best as we can.
    So if you can afford it, even just £1, please show these people some love at this terrible time and donate.

    ***Everyone has been so incredibly generous and we hit our original target of £5,000 in just under seven hours, then our second of £20,000 at 3pm-ish on Thursday (June 15), then our third of £25,000 on Friday morning, so we have decided to raise it to £30,000. Thank you to everyone who has donated, please share this page and help us raise even more money.

      As the 30-day period on our page comes to an end, we just wanted to say the most enormous thank you to everyone who has contributed, no matter how big or small. Every penny matters. We have chosen to donate the money to Family Action, which is working directly with the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire through a grants service, to give them money to help rebuild their lives. From everyone at getwestlondon, thanks for donating and making a difference at this terrible time.
