Day Out in Wicksteed Park for the families and children affected by the Grenfell Tower fire
“Rebuilding Lives” has never been an event.
It is a process that continues after the initial shock and recovery.
This “Rebuilding Lives” campaign of LCoF (Luton Council of Faiths) and GRASSROOTS is to help people affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire Tragedy in West London. We have previously had “Rebuilding Lives” Fundraising Campaigns for:
1) Tsunami victims and survivors in Galle, Sri Lanka (2004-05)
2) Earthquake victims and survivors in Namnotta, Kashmir (2005-06)
3) Flood victims and survivors in Pakistan (2010-11)
4) Earthquake victims and survivors in Haiti and Chile (2010-11)
5) Floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina (2014-15)
In every crisis, we have had people here in Luton, advising us on sending help. This time our colleagues and volunteers Angela Scarlett Marshall of St Thomas Church (Stopsley) and Madit Grant of The Olive Tree Church (Biscot), are proposing to organise a DAY OUT for the Grenfell Tower Fire survivors by end of August 2017.
This tragedy has been shocking and overwhelming but every time, people from all religions and ethnicities, and people of no particular faith affiliation in Luton, have responded generously. So, if you are able to help, you can do so in the following ways:
a) BACS Transfer via Cooperative Bank – Account Number: 65066380 / Sort Code: 08-92-99
b) Cheques payable to ‘Luton Council of Faiths’ sent to 47 High Town Road, Luton, LU2 0BW
(for both BACS transfers and cheques please add a reference stating ‘Grenfell’)
c) Make a donation online at https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/6787
d) Cash donations delivered at GRASSROOTS, 47 High Town Road, Luton, LU2 0BW
(or call 01582 416946 and we can arrange collection)
As they say, every little helps!
