North Kensington Firefighters - Marathon for Grenfell

We are a team of 9 firefighters from Red Watch at North Kensington fire station. We were the first crew on scene at the Grenfell Tower fire on the 14th June 2017. Alongside our emergency service colleagues we battled to save lives as one of the worst British tragedies of modern times unfolded within our own community.

In the weeks and months since the fire we have grieved with, and stood in solidarity with the survivors and community of Grenfell. Now, in 2018, we would like to help heal and re-build.

We are running the 2018 London Marathon with the aim of raising £10,000 for “Kids on the Green.” This grassroots group was set up in the aftermath of Grenfell to provide free counselling to the children who survived, or were affected by the fire. They also provide free entertainment such as discos, dance classes, art therapy and parties.

Overall this fantastic organisation allows children who have seen and experienced the unthinkable to regain a sense of normality and do what kids do best, have fun!

Everyone at North Kensington Fire Station would love the children of our community to grow up with their lives defined by happy times and achievements, not by a tragedy. Please donate and help to make this a reality.
