Story

It's hard to find the words to express the shock and sadness that we all feel at the tragic events at Grenfell Tower. Questions must be asked and answered about how this kind of tragedy is even possible in this day and age. But in the immediate aftermath, the focus has to be on the injured and dispossessed as they face the challenges of rebuilding their lives.

#makersforgrenfell is about our community of craftspeople and makers (here in the UK and all over the world) using our skills to support, and show solidarity with, those families and their community through fundraising. This is the page where the results of that fundraising will be channelled. There are a number of events in the process of being planned and you can stay up to date with those by following @makersforgrenfell or @portialawrie on instagram.

***IMPORTANT- IF BUYING TICKETS FOR THE FUNDRAISING RAFFLE - MAKE SURE YOUR DONATION AMOUNT IS NOT ANONYMOUS AND WRITE "RAFFLE" FOLLOWED BY YOUR FULL NAME, IN THE COMMENT SECTION ****

Stay tuned for that. And to the residents of Grenfell Tower....we stand with you.
