Council goes Green for Grenfell
Published: 13 June 2018
Redbridge Council’s office building will be illuminated green on Thursday night on the eve of ‘Green for Grenfell’ day.
The 12th floor of Lynton House in Ilford, along with the street lights outside the Town Hall and the Kenneth More Theatre, will be lit green in support of the event, organised by Grenfell United.
One year on from the tragedy, the national event has been designed to celebrate a spirit of unity and collaboration. It will reflect how the community around the Tower and all over the UK came together to help after the tragedy last year.
Buildings in London such as BT Tower and London Eye will be illuminated, creating a memorial visible across the capital.
The Grenfell community has asked schools to wear something green, fundraise for local causes and share their stories, photos and projects from the day on social media using the hashtag #GreenForGrenfellDay.
The council will also observe a minute’s silence at 12noon on Thursday 14th June in remembrance of those who lost their lives and all others that were affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire.
Leader of the Council Cllr Jas Athwal said: “The Grenfell fire was unimaginable tragedy that shocked our country to the core. One year on it’s time to reflect and remember and I hope others across the borough will join us in supporting this important initiative.”
