    Story

    On June 14th 2017, just after midnight a fire broke out in the Grenfell Tower in west London. The fire rapidly spread through the building with residents so desperate to get out some jumped out of their windows, while others pleaded for help. This is one of Britain's most tragic fires in history and many are still missing...
    The outpour of donations has been overwhelming and the volunteers offering their time is incredible.
    A small group of individuals with no charity experience have managed to build in just over a week, a warehouse which holds clothing, toiletries, bedding, food, water, toys, nappies and much more, and have collated care packages for those in direct need of help. We hand deliver each package, with more requests coming every hour, every day.
    We are now raising money to buy the things we do not hold in the warehouse, electrical goods, underwear, hot food, suitcases and also not forgetting the psychological need for healing & therapy.
    We promise to keep you updated and thank anyone that may being able to offer anything...

      Thank you to each and everyone who made our fundraisers such a success; to all those who dropped by and donated, to the local businesses* who donated generous raffle prizes, the bakers who made delicious cakes for us to sell but, most of all, to all the volunteers who gave their weekends to make the fundraisers happen. Whilst we will be announcing the raffle winners tomorrow, we wanted to share that our combined efforts have so far raised over £15,000. Many thanks again to everyone who has joined and helped us on the journey so far.

      Whilst we have accepted financial donations since the day of the fire, we started actively fundraising. We noticed that requests received increasingly asked for new items only as survivors started to think beyond basic survival necessities and instead towards the future and rebuilding their lives. Given most of the donations we received were used clothing we decided to hold two fundraising weekends to convert these into funds we could use to help survivors buy the new clothing and homeware items they were requesting.

      These individual requests often included items we didn’t have in stock so using financial donations we purchased those items upon request. Such requests included: phone chargers, plus-size clothing, nursing pillows, baby bottles, breast pumps, diabetic testing kits, new clothes for newborn babies and children in hospitals, microwaves, kettles, phones, sim cards, phone credit and hot food. We also provided small amounts of financial aid as and when needed by each family.
