Tickets for a special concert marking one year since the Grenfell Tower fire , which is being held in memory of one of its victims, have gone on sale.
The Hope for Grenfell Memorial Gala takes place on Wednesday 13th June at Opera Holland Park, and aims to raise £50,000 for the Rugby Portobello Trust (RPT) to support victims.
It is being held in memory of the 71 victims of the disaster, including Debbie Lamprell, who worked at the music hall’s front of house .
Last year a charity performance of Verdi’s Requiem , held just a few weeks after Grenfell fire, sold out in 36 hours and raised a total of £41,000 for the RPT.
Funds raised by this year’s memorial concert will enable more than 100 children and young people from North Kensington to go on trips to the coast and countryside to try new activities and escape the pressures of everyday life.
It allows them to learn new skills and boost confidence, as well as fostering a safe environment in which to address any emotional issues.
