GRENFELL TOWER INCIDENT
Our thoughts at Westfield London are with all those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.
As a major community hub within the area, Westfield London and its employees have been working hard since early Wednesday to support emergency services who are onsite, whilst liaising with the local authorities and Lancaster West Residents Association to establish the immediate needs of those affected and how we can assist.
There has been an overwhelming response from our customers, local residents and retailers wanting to show support, and together with them, we are working on a number of initiatives to respond to the tragedy.
Westfield and a number of retailers are ensuring emergency service staff including police, firefighters and ambulance staff have enough food and water supplies to assist their teams onsite. We are also offering a temporary accommodation base for emergency services at the centre, while a number of restaurants have offered free meals for those affected.
Thank you to the customers, retailers and local residents who have generously donated items at the drop-off point in Westfield London. All local collection centres are at capacity, and as such, we are not collecting donations at present. We will update this page with any changes.
Westfield London is continuing to work closely with our neighbours on ways that we can support at this difficult time.
Westfield London has made a donation directly to The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation Grenfell Tower appeal. Our team is also running in-centre fundraising collections to raise money for those affected. We have already seen a very generous response from customers, and collections will continue throughout the week. Members of the public can also donate online through the following channels:
