In our thoughts
Our thoughts and prayers are with all people affected by the recent terrorist tragedies at Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge and with the people of North Kensington. The horrific fire at Grenfell Tower is an image etched on our hearts - our prayers are with all affected. In all these instances of loss and suffering we are drawn to an understanding that it is through love that we will go forward together. If you wish to make any contribution to the Evening Standard Dispossed Fund: Grenfell Tower Fire this link will take you to the JustGiving page.
