Following the tragic fire and loss of life at Grenfell Tower in London many people have been asking how they can help those affected and how they can make donations for the victims, their families, and in support of the harrowing work by the emergency services.

There are many sites and different charities taking donations and the preference now is for financial support. These sites can be found on the web.

Should anyone wish to donate locally they can leave cash contributions at the Whitchurch Town Hall Office and any funds will be forwarded.

Our thoughts are with all those affected.
