Londoners have proven their resilience and strength over the last few dreadful weeks.

I know you won’t want to read me wittering on about the property market right now. So, I wanted to pause to think about those people who have suffered, in such tragic circumstances, in communities not far from our own.

The terror attacks in Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park brought communities together and made us proud of the individuals who protected others through the assaults.

And the horror of the fire at Grenfell Tower is hard to fathom. How a tall building in the 21st Century can be put at such risk will need to be investigated, but for now our hearts go out to the hundreds of families whose lives have been devastated by this disaster.

Local communities pulled together and the initial response was incredible. Many of our friends and colleagues joined people from across London and donated food, clothing and time to help the survivors. 

But now specific services and money are needed. And you can make a difference.

If you’d like to do your bit to help the Grenfell survivors please look at the links below:

For now, we will all be getting on with our lives and enjoying (or complaining about!) the British weather. But please spare some time and a little cash for these people who have lost so much.
