I believe everyone was shocked and saddened by the events in West London and the Grenfell Tower fire. My thoughts are with those caught up in the fire, their friends and family and the local community. My thanks goes out to the fire fighters who risked their own lives to save others, the police for their extensive work in the area and the Hospitals who treated the injured. Many within these services worked longer than they should in a dangerous environment; for that I will always be thankful.
Yet again, Tooting's community came together and within hours multiple groups set up donation centres and transported a large amount of supplies to those affected by the fire.
