Support for Worecester Park families
I was shocked by the major fire incident overnight in Worcester Park and my heart goes out to residents who’ve lost their homes and grateful to London Fire Brigade for working to get incident under control and our brave ambulance services.
Metropolitan Housing have confirmed they will pay for immediate accommodation and then liaise with insurers. By 12pm yesterday all of 23 families were given a Metropolitan Housing contact to assist them.
Police investigation continues into cause of the fire. London Fire Brigade not yet deemed the building safe - once they have, they will escort residents to collect any belongings that can be salvaged.
I’ve been helping the amazing volunteers to organise the donations. Please do not bring anymore clothing donations. The residents have asked if a crowdfunding page could be set up. If you can donate, please do so here and share the link.
