Fire in Grenfell Tower - from Offish:

Post by DG » Wed Jun 14, 2017 12:36 pm

The awful fire in the tower, still ongoing, is heartbreaking. The club has made a statement about those wishing to offer help/donations of clothing etc:

Well done QPR. Hopefully local people will make donations. In fact, I'm sure they will.

The various Banbury FB groups have been asking for donations of food & clothing all day, volunteers took 3 van loads down to W11 this afternoon. They are looking at some cake sales etc. to raise money for temporary housing.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

A classy touch from an ex player.

The Queen has visited the relief centre but still no Mrs May. The only May likely to visit is Brian May.

Agree. He gets plenty of stick(including me) and this is a nice story. Reading got on LFW that our own Jack Robinson has been helping volunteers down at HQ - and providing lunches. Nice one fella.
