Cashfloat today joined an extraordinary response from Londoners and many across the UK to help the Evening Standard’s fund for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Thousands of pounds has already been donated from the public and London-based firms, the country has pulled together to help the residents bereaved and left homeless by the events.
Payday lender Casfloat donated £3,500 to the fund.
“People lost their lives in this fire. The lucky ones ‘only’ lost everything they owned. It’s an unbelievable tragedy, and we all have a social responsibility to do what we can to help out. At Cashfloat, we’re constantly trying to help people improve their financial situations. Donating money towards these people is the least we could do,” says Jeremy Lloyd, CEO of Cashfloat.
“These families have to start from scratch. They are suddenly left with no home, no clothes, no personal possessions – nothing. I shudder to think about what these people must be going through,” says Mr Lloyd. “This tragedy has brought London together, everyone’s helping in whatever way they can. May G-d bless the people who have lost everything, and especially those who have lost loved ones.”
Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a full public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower disaster. May said the inquiry was needed to ensure “this terrible tragedy is properly investigated”.
