Grenfell United (GU), an organisation representing survivors and bereaved of the Grenfell tragedy are supporting CNWL’s COVID-19 fundraising appeal, and called for people to support the efforts.
GU posted its call on Twitter, saying that the Trust has supported the Grenfell community since the incident, and that now is the time for the community to support it by donating and showing appreciation, as it fights against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The tweet said: “Our local @NHS @CNWLNHS have been supporting the Grenfell community since 2017. Now it’s time for us to support them. If you’re able to donate or share this appeal please do, & tonight let’s #clapforcarers again.”
The post was liked 65 times and shared 25 times.
Claire Murdoch, CNWL Chief Executive responded to the tweet saying, “This has brought a tear to my eye. We have been privileged to work with you. Inspired by your strength and dignity throughout your whole journey, and now, overwhelmed by your greatness if heart and generosity of spirit. Thank you. We have a long way to travel yet…but together.”
CNWL works closely with the Grenfell community and organisations like GU to provide tailored services that support recovery and wellbeing. These include the Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service, the Dedicated Service (for bereaved and survivors), and the Grenfell Spoke Recovery College.
CNWL is asking for donations so that we can support our staff who are working tirelessly over long hours, to keep vital services running. Your donation can help us show appreciation, and look after their wellbeing, as well as provide resources for the wider community. Read more about how your donation can help.
