Evesham volunteers fill lorry full of donations for Grenfell Tower victims

VOLUNTEERS from Evesham helped to fill a lorry full of donations for those left homeless by the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The dozens of volunteers gave up their time yesterday to pack the lorry with bags and boxes full of clothes, food, toys and furniture.

Lisa Beasley from H&I Transport, who offered up one of her lorry’s and helped organise the donation effort, only launched the appeal for donations on Wednesday.

Following her appeal, Evesham residents dug deep to donate whatever they could for those who lost everything in the devastating fire.

Donations began piling up outside her home and even more was dropped off at the drop-off point in Honeybourne yesterday.

Lisa said: “It was a brilliant day. We are so pleased with the amount of things the local Evesham people have donated to such a great cause.

“I would personally like to thank all the volunteers for coming out in their free time to help box and load the truck.”
