Advice for Volunteers
Shortly after pictures of the distress caused by the Grenfell Tower fire were witnessed by Londoners and people across the country, donations of food, water, clothing, toys and personal hygiene items came flooding in from the general public. Many centres were set up locally to receive donations but these are now become full to capacity. What is now required are volunteers to help process, organise and pack the items to allow them to be dispatched to those in need.
