Members of the Queens Park Rangers community have come together in aid of the victims of the Grenfell Towers fire, which led to a number of fatalities and left many seriously injured.

The blaze occurred overnight, leaving residents of the building and those closely connecting frantically worrying for their nearest and dearest.

Speaking on Twitter, QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes said: "Tragic what i'm seeing in North Kensington. @QPRFC will do whatever it can to help. My thoughts to all. Really sad."

This was then followed up by another message saying: "I have asked @QPRDFC Lee Hoos to see if Loftus Road could be used as a relief centre. Our community team will be mobilised. We will do whatever."

QPR then began communications with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in order to collect donations of clothes, blankets, toiletries and food to be distributed to those affected by the accident.

The club confirmed they would willingly receive donations until 7pm this evening, before re-opening at 7am to collect any other donations put forward by the community.

Credit must go to Queens Park Rangers FC for the way they promptly stepped forward to aid those affected by the fire, which took place just minutes away from the ground, Loftus Road.

For more information, contact the designated North Kensington Casualty Bureau line, set up by the Metropolitan Police on 0800 0961 233.
