FA WNL Chairman Carol West said:
“The Grenfell Tower tragedy continues to affect those that lost friends, family and loved ones as well as those still living in its shadow in the local community. We are honoured and humbled to be able to have the opportunity to support such deserving charities and hope we get a big crowd to raise as much money as possible.”
“The Grenfell tragedy was horrific and touched so many people, so when I was asked to get involved in this game, I jumped at the chance. It will be great to catch up with former team-mates and friends, and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for this great cause.”
The Grenfell Foundation is a charitable organisation set up this year at the request Catof bereaved and survivors from the Grenfell Tower fire. It will provide support and assistance to the generations affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy for years to come, with an emphasis on community, well-being and education. Thanks to donations, the Foundation will soon be opening up a grant system to support community-led projects that work in these areas.
