Fire at Grenfell Tower

All of us at the Design Museum are shocked and saddened by the tragic events that overtook our neighbours at Grenfell Tower. Our sympathies are with those who lost their lives in terrible circumstances, with their families and friends, and those who are rendered homeless and injured.

The Kensington & Chelsea Foundation is coordinating financial donations to help those affected which can be made by their website. We would urge those who can to help their fundraising effort.
