Sabrina Aloueche and Kieran Brown have organised and produced a concert in aid of raising money and awareness for the North Kensington Firefighters who are running the London Marathon for children affected by the Grenfell Tragedy.
A Night of A Hundred Heroes will be held at The Actors Church on Sunday April 15th featuring stars from across the West End from shows such as Aladdin, Hamilton, Les Miserables, Kinky Boots, Wicked, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Mamma Mia, Matilda, Shrek, Legally Blonde, Phantom of The Opera, and many many more.
Line up will be announced on the official Twitter page @we4Grenfell in the coming days.
A team of 9 firefighters, first on the scene at the Grenfell Tower Fire will be taking to the London streets on April 22nd, running the world famous Marathon to raise £50,000 for the children most affected by the blaze.
North Kensington Red Watch were the first crew to arrive at Grenfell Tower in the early hours of June 14th 2017. Alongside their emergency service colleagues they battled to save lives as the worst fire since the blitz unfolded within their own community.
This year the crew have decided to take on the challenge of running the London Marathon together to raise funds for “Kids on the Green.” Some of which will be in attendance of this beautiful concert. This children’s organisation was set up by community members the day after the fire to provide free counselling, creative therapies, and fun experiences to the children who survived or were affected by the tragedy.
One of the runners, firefighter Tom Abell said “In the weeks and months since the fire we have grieved with, and stood in solidarity with the survivors and community of Grenfell. Now, in 2018, we would like to help heal and re-build. Kids on the Green is a fantastic organisation which allows children who have seen and experienced the unthinkable to regain a sense of normality and do
what kids do best, have fun! Everyone at North Kensington Fire Station would love the children of Grenfell to grow up with their lives defined by happy times and achievements, not by a tragedy.”
