Several JustGiving pages have been set up to donate money for the victims of the tragedy, and many have tweeted about how people can help out following the devastating fire. Labour MP for Tottenham, David Lammy, tweeted: "If you can help with clothes, food, blankets, toiletries etc please donate to: St Clements Church, 95 Sirdar Rd, W11 4EQ #GrenfellTower." Others were quick to offer a helping hand, with one person tweeting: "I've booked 4 hotel rooms close to #GrenfellTower - please DM me if you know anyone who needs somewhere to stay tonight. Please RT," while the charity ClementJames Centre wrote: "UPDATE: We no longer need any donations thanks to everyone's incredible generosity. @Tesco are on their way with a big order! #GrenfellTower."
