Statement in response to London terror attacks

Published:

In response to the London terror attacks, Alison Gowman, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s City Bridge Trust Committee, said:

“The events of London Bridge and Borough Market this weekend, so hard on the heels of the attacks in Manchester and Westminster, are tragic and our thoughts are with all the victims and their families. 

 “In the immediate wake of the London attack we have focused our efforts on supporting the work of the London Emergencies Trust, which was set up after the terrorist attack on Westminster Bridge earlier this year, working closely with the British Red Cross and City Hall.

 “We recommend that anyone who wishes to donate to help with the latest tragedies arising from terrorism should do so via the British Red Cross’ UK Solidarity Fund. This money will then be passed on to London Emergencies Trust for distribution to the bereaved families and injured survivors.

 “City Bridge Trust is providing practical and financial support to the London Emergencies Trust, through a £75,000 grant we made to support their vital work and to fund the bereaved families and injured survivors of the Westminster terror attack. We are also providing staff and office space.

 “We will continue our work in tackling London’s inequality, bridging divides and strengthening our communities to improve the lives of our extraordinary city and its people.

 “It is the responsibility of us all to work together and do all we can to support the victims and families of the weekend’s attack.”
