A WILSHIRE woman was so moved by the plight of the Grenfell Tower fire survivors she is staging a sponsored walk.

Lydia Harris, who lives in Corsham, said: “I went up to London after the Grenfell Tower disaster and I helped with sorting aid for the survivors.

“I came home totally upset by it, and decided I needed to do more.

“People are being sponsored or donating on the day and the walk is five miles long, from the main Co op in Corsham to Bowden Hill, Lacock, at 10am on Sunday, July 9.

What these human beings have been through and are going through is up and beyond what any of us can even begin to imagine.

“They have lost everything, and raising money cannot bring that back for them, but it is the act of kindness which helps emotionally and the act of doing something that can help ease the practical side of their journey to recovery.

“I have had a lot of support from a small business in Corsham with spreading the word and posters have been put up.”
