Grenfell firefighters to take on Three Peaks Challenge to help victims

Hero fire fighter who fought the blaze at Grenfell Tower yesterday set up a charity drive to climb the three highest mountains in each British mainland country.

The Brixton Red Watch who were on scene from 2am till 3:30pm have set up a JustGiving page which has already reached over £7,000 of its £10,000 target.

The National Three Peaks challenge will see the fireman climb Snowdon (Wales), Scafell Pike (England) and Ben Nevis (Scotland) in 24 hours on the 24 June.

Organiser M Sonson said on the JustGiving pitch: “One life lost is too many for us, so we want to do more to help those whose lives have been destroyed by this devastating disaster.”

Grenfell Tower was engulfed in flames leaving at least 30 people dead, 24 people in hospital and up to 76 people missing after a fire was reported at 12.54am in Kensington on Wednesday.

M Sonson said: “Our minds are absolutely blown that you guys have smashed our target in less than a day”.

The fundraiser is part of a wider scheme set out by Time to Help UK to raise money for victims who lost their homes and possessions.
